Chicago Happy Hour for Blue Slip Reform

July 12, 2023 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm UTC-5

For the last two years, blue slips have been used to slow down judicial nominations and confirmations. Even worse, they’ve been used to ensure that many judicial vacancies have gone unfilled, leaving millions of people without adequate access to justice. While Senators Schumer, Durbin, and other leaders have confirmed historic nominees, Senate Republicans must not be allowed to weaponize blue slips to stop our progress. Senator Durbin has the power to reform or end the use of blue slips and ensure a functional, equitable judicial nominations process. We need to show support for him to act. Join People’s Parity Project, Alliance for Justice, and the National Council of Jewish Women for drinks, appetizers, and a conversation about the fight to build a legal system that works for all.
