"We are deeply disappointed by today’s Senate vote on Judge Kavanaugh’s confirmation. Survivors have little to gain by coming forward and speaking their truth - they’re often met with disbelief and criticism. The Senate failed to believe Dr. Ford. We urge all Senators to reach out to victim advocacy organizations and survivors in their respective districts to educate themselves on the realities of interpersonal violence and to hear the stories of survivors from their own communities. Victims must know that they will be believed when they come forward. Today’s vote makes it clear that advocacy is needed now more than ever before. Thank you to Dr. Ford for your bravery and strength, and to all of the courageous survivors and allies who stood up and spoke out. We continue to stand with survivors everywhere and are grateful to Senators Shaheen and Hassan who voted against Judge Kavanaugh’s confirmation. Our work is far from finished and we will continue to believe survivors, elevate their voices, and fight for justice.
- Amanda Grady Sexton, Director of Public Affairs for the NH Coalition Against Domestic and Sexual Violence.
