Why Courts Matter in the Trump Era

Since taking office, the Trump administration has pushed an agenda that attacks fundamental American values such as fairness, equality, and justice. Fortunately, on multiple occasions our federal courts have stepped in to protect basic rule of law. We must continue to fight for judges who understand the rule of law and value equality and justice for all.
