Tell Senators John Cornyn and Ted Cruz to fill judicial vacancies and put Texas women on Texas courts!

Texas has nine judicial vacancies – more than any state in the country. Last year, experts estimated that Texas’ judicial vacancy crisis had created a 12,000 case backlog that would take 19 years to fix.

At the same time it’s been four years – over 1,300 days – since Texas’ U.S. Senators put forward a female judicial nominee.

Sometimes the best way to change power is to change what power looks like. Help us put Texas women on Texas courts!

Dear Sen. Cornyn and Sen. Cruz,

We currently have nine empty seats on Texas’ federal courts, and we should fill them with female judges.

We hope you swiftly work with the White House and Congressional Democrats to put forward female nominees to fill the vacancies on Texas' federal courts.

    Background & Updates

    It’s been four years – over 1,300 days – since your offices put forward a female judicial nominee. That means that no female has been nominated for a seat on Texas’ federal courts since Sen. Ted Cruz took office. Texas has more vacancies in its federal courts than any other state in the nation. It seems like each time one vacancy gets filled, another vacancy opens up.

    On issues that matter to all Texans – health care, LGBT equality, equal pay, voting rights, and abortion access – Texas women must be an equal part of the conversation.

    Yet only 28% of Texas’ federal court judges are women. That’s unacceptable.
