The Supreme Court announced that it will hear arguments on October 5 on whether to take President Trump’s Muslim Ban under consideration. This provides us with a very important and timely opportunity on Thursday/Sept 28 when Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch will keynote The Fund for American Studies’ (TFAS) “Defending Freedom Luncheon” at the Trump International Hotel in DC. Justice Gorsuch’s participation is problematic both because of the venue and the host. First, by lending his credibility—and presumably that of the court—to an event at a hotel where the president has an undeniable financial interest, Justice Gorsuch allows his impartiality to be called into question regarding matters related to President Trump. Second, the group he is speaking before, TFAS, has ties to anti-Muslim groups through mutual funders. The Center for American Progress (CAP) has documented that a TFAS donor, the Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation, has contributed $6.5 million dollars to anti-Muslim organizations and individuals from 2001 to 2012 alone. We believe this is noteworthy as Justice Gorsuch will decide in the next week on whether version 3.0 of the Muslim/refugee ban should be heard by the Court.
Please join us in a stand for impartiality and justice on Thursday at 11 AM at Trump Hotel in DC.
NOTE: By participating in this event, you agree (i) not to engage in any act of violence or violation of any applicable law, and (ii) to obey the orders of authorized event marshals and law enforcement authorities.
