Tell Your Senators: Goodwin Liu Deserves a Vote!


An acclaimed scholar, teacher, and lawyer, Goodwin Liu is widely considered one of the brightest legal minds of his generation. Yet his nomination to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals has been stalled for over a year by obstruction in the U.S. Senate.

Act now to support Goodwin Liu's nomination to the Ninth Circuit. Tell your senators to confirm Goodwin Liu TODAY!

Supported by leaders from across the political spectrum, Goodwin Liu possesses the intellect, integrity, experience, and temperament to serve as an excellent circuit court judge. Not even his harshest critics can claim that Liu isn't superbly qualified, but some Republicans may still try to prevent him from even receiving a vote in the Senate.

Goodwin Liu has waited too long for a vote. We need you to join us in a national effort to support Liu's confirmation TODAY.

Liu's nomination also has historic significance: if confirmed, he would become only the second active Asian American appellate judge in the country, and the only active Asian American judge on the West Coast's Ninth Circuit. The Senate will decide Thursday if Liu will even receive a yes-or-no vote; the time to act is now!
Tell your senators to move forward with Goodwin Liu's nomination, and to vote to confirm him to the Ninth Circuit.
