Progressives want to expand the Court along with ethics and anti- corruption reforms. Five justices were nominated by Republican presidents who lost the popular vote and the Court is unaccountable. The Senate Republicans denied a hearing for Garland, who is now the US Attorney General.

The legitimacy of the court should be taken up by the RNC.

The message is being encouraged by the Progressive Change Campaign Committee and other left-leaning groups.

According to a June Gallup poll, only 25% of Americans have confidence in the Supreme Court, down from 36% in 2011.

"We believe that any critique of individual Court decisions should also call out this politicized Court itself, and we wanted to ask you to amplify this message in the days ahead," PCCC co- founder Adam Green wrote in a June 29 message to lawmakers.

PCCC, March For Our Lives, UltraViolet, Demand Justice, and the American Constitution Society signed the email.
