Activists shame Facebook for sponsoring Brett Kavanaugh dinner

The group is going after Facebook for its “Gold Circle” sponsorship ― the highest level listed ― of an annual Federalist Society gala that this year honored Kavanaugh. The conservative lawyers’ group had helped Kavanaugh, one of its members, get his high court seat. Last week, the justice spoke at the group’s Antonin Scalia Memorial Dinner.

“In funding Brett Kavanaugh’s redemption tour, Facebook’s leaders have chosen profits over survivors,” Katie O’Connor, senior counsel for Demand Justice, told HuffPost. “Facebook employees who disagree with that choice need to speak up, and they need to do it now. Until there is justice for Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, we will be holding people accountable when they use their power to rehabilitate Kavanaugh.”
