Fresno Office: (559) 485-7430
San Diego Office: (619) 231-9712

If you can't get through to one office, try another.  There is no benefit to calling one office over another.  Leaving a voicemail is as good as reaching a live person.

DC Office: (202) 224-3553
Sacramento Office: (916) 448-2787

San Diego Office: (619) 239-3884

Call the SF office first, but try the other offices if you can’t get through. If you can’t get a live person, leave a voicemail and also send a follow-up email written in your own words.

My name is __________. I am a constituent, and my zip code is _______. I am a member of Indivisible SF.

I’m calling to urge the Senator to vote NO on the lifetime appointment of Stephen R. Clark for federal judge. Clark is a longtime activist opposed to women’s right to choose, contraceptive care, and same-sex marriage. I'm very concerned that he will not set aside his extreme biases and his extreme partisanship, if appointed to the bench. As such, I strongly urge you to vote against Stephen R. Clark’s nomination for federal judge.


Background

Trump’s judicial nominee, Stephen R. Clark, has been an attorney and activist against women’s reproductive rights and same-sex marriage equality for years.

  1. Clark accused medical schools that partner with Planned Parenthood of “training the abortionists of the future.”

  2. He has counseled right-to-life groups on obstructionist tactics to use against abortion providers of so-called “coerced abortions.”

  3. Until last year, Clark was a director of Lawyers for Life, a right-to-life group. Their newsletter said “Roe v. Wade gave doctors a license to kill the unborn,” and that Roe v. Wade was “bad law.”

  4. In a lawsuit against contraceptives coverage under the Affordable Care Act, Clark used misinformation from medical advisers who said using contraceptives leads to “increased risk-taking and sexual behavior.” These medical advisers have been debunked for their unproven theories.

  5. An opponent of same-sex marriage, Clark has said: “one of the next evolutions of same-sex marriage is polygamy.”
