Outspoken liberal entertainers like Lena Dunham and Whoopi Goldberg plan to storm Washington, D.C., Thursday in protest of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, USA Today reported.
What are the details?
The #CancelKavanaugh protest is scheduled at 12:30 p.m. Thursday outside the E. Barrett Prettyman Federal Courthouse — just a few blocks from the Capitol.
Party Majority PAC is sponsoring the event, and a description for the event states, "If there was ever a moment when the voice of the people can come together in concert to change the fate of our nation, this is it. Arm in arm, organized and ready, every child, woman, and man must take to the streets to protest this nomination."
The PAC added, "We anticipate a vote on the Senate floor to confirm Brett Kavanaugh as early as Friday. It is critical we make our voices heard on the ground in Washington on Thursday."
Those on board for the protest include Dunham, Goldberg, Amy Schumer, Alicia Keys, John Legend, and more.
USA Today reported that liberal celebrity activists will deliver speeches and performances in person, while other entertainers — who will not be able to make the D.C. gathering — will walk off their jobs on Thursday at 12:30 p.m. in solidarity.
During Christine Blasey Ford's testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee last week, she said that she suffered a sexual assault at the hands of Kavanaugh during a high school party in 1982.
Kavanaugh categorically denied these allegations during his own testimony last Thursday.
The Judiciary Committee voted Friday to send the Kavanaugh nomination to full Senate. Committee members asked that the FBI conduct a one-week investigation into Ford’s accusations.
