Family Equality Council: Investigate Sexual Assault Allegations Against Kavanaugh Before Confirmation Proceeds

WASHINGTON, D.C. —  In response to reports of more allegations of sexual misconduct committed by U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, Family Equality Council CEO Rev. Stan J. Sloan issued the following statement:

“Allegations of sexual misconduct are piling up against Brett Kavanaugh, and it is critically important that each allegation is investigated thoroughly in a fair and nonpartisan manner. Forcing ahead with Kavanaugh’s nomination without investigating these allegations sends the message to survivors of sexual violence across America that they do not matter, before Congress, or before the nation’s highest court.”

Family Equality Council calls on Americans to wear black and walk out in solidarity with Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, Deborah Ramirez, and all survivors of sexual violence today – Monday, September 24 at 1pm ET – and to share messages of support on social media with #BelieveSurvivors.
