Let’s talk about gender equality. If you care about it (and you should), you should care about the future of the Supreme Court.

Video highlights provide additional insight to issues addressed in our feature films.
Let’s talk about the planet. The way we treat it affects the water we drink, the air we breathe, the health of our communities and the stability of our climate, for generations to come. Big polluters want to continue dumping toxic pollution and dangerous greenhouse gases into our air and water. And our Supreme Court has a big say in whether we can set standards limiting them at all.
Let’s talk about money and power for a second. Right now we have a Supreme Court that has ruled in favor of the wealthy and powerful over the rights of everyday people. The Court has cracked down on workers’ rights to organize, let big companies crush consumers, and let special interests dominate our elections. But it doesn’t have to be this way.
This is a make or break moment for our rights and freedoms. Right now we’re at a crossroads. The death of Antonin Scalia has left a vacancy on the Court, and that’s just the beginning. There are three more justices who will be in their 80s during the next administration. The math here is simple: whomever those four new justices are will determine what the Constitution means for the rest of your life.
