For the past several months, Maine People's Alliance and Mainers for Accountable Leadership partnered with dying father Ady Barkan of Be a Hero to beg Senator Collins to vote "no" on Trump's Supreme Court Nominee Brett Kavanaugh.


Senator Collins betrayed the public trust when she voted in favor of Kavanaugh’s confirmation.


The people of Maine have been clear with you, Senator Collins: the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court Justice is a threat to all Mainers. Kavanaugh is committed to ending healthcare for people with pre-existing conditions. He is committed to overturning Roe v. Wade. His confirmation poses a danger for millions of families in Maine and across America.


Senator, your deciding vote was a rubber-stamp for Trump’s anti-healthcare, anti-woman, anti-environment and anti-labor agenda.


For failing to stand up for the people of Maine and ignoring the voices of your constituents, and for endangering the lives of millions of Americans, we will work to elect a new senator to represent the State of Maine. 

Every dollar donated to this campaign will be used to fund your eventual Democratic opponent in 2020.  Mainers deserve a senator who will fight for a country that works for all of us.

September 7, 2018

Can you take a moment to help us reach our new $1.3 million goal?

This week has been huge for the Be A Hero movement, and it’s all thanks to you. We showed up in force to Brett Kavanaugh’s hearings with Women’s March and CPDA– and over 200 protesters were arrested.

We worked hard to reach our $500k fundraising goal, and then blew it out of the water. Now, our goal is to raise $1.3 million – the same amount as Senator Susan Collins has in her campaign bank account.

If you share our campaign with just three friends, we will reach that new goal. I know, it sounds like a lot of money. That’s because it is. But we’ve already raised over $670,000 and our movement has turned heads around the country doing it. With every arrest, every fist raised in protest and every voice raised in objection to the actions of this corrupt Republican judicial agenda, we send waves across the country.

Can you share our campaign with three friends right now?  We need your help to keep up the drumbeat against Kavanaugh and for our healthcare.

If there’s one thing this week has proven, it’s that when Trump and Republicans in Congress jeopardize our healthcare and our lives, the people – thousands of us – are ready to stand up, fight back and stop them.
