The Courts Matter Coalition of Nebraska is a coalition of diverse organizations that works to ensure a federal judiciary composed of individuals who are committed to upholding core Constitutional values. Core Constitutional values include rights such as voting rights, worker’s rights, the right to privacy, freedom of speech, the separation of church and state, and the right of assembly.
The Courts Matter Coalition of Nebraska works to:
- Educate the public and our elected officials about the importance of federal judges who sit on the U.S. District, Circuit and Supreme Courts.
- Provide information about the judicial nominations process and the records of judicial nominees who will impact our Constitutional values and fundamental rights.
- Mobilize our communities to speak out and take action on the President’s federal judicial nominees.
The Courts Matter Coalition of Nebraska monitors and takes action on federal judicial nominations because of the immense power held by the individuals who hold lifetime seats on the federal bench. The federal courts are the final arbiter when it comes to the rights of all Americans. Therefore, the composition of these courts, and the nominations process that determines this composition, affects every issue that is important to American citizens.
