Today, People For the American Way (PFAW) released a digital video spotlighting the Supreme Court as a central issue in the 2016 presidential election. The video, which will be promoted on social media to PFAW members and millennial voters, lays out the simple binary choice facing voters in this election: either Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump will be the next president and have the power to nominate up to four Supreme Court justices, shaping the future of our country for decades. The video also details the types of justices Trump and Clinton have discussed appointing.

Watch the video:

“Either Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump will become the next President of the United States, and their choice of Supreme Court justices will have an enormous impact on issues like the environment, LGBT rights, and abortion access for decades,” said PFAW Communications Director Drew Courtney. “Hillary Clinton has made clear that she’ll appoint justices who understand that the Constitution protects all of us, not just the wealthy and powerful. Donald Trump’s will protect the privileges of the wealthy and powerful, but not the rights of ordinary people. It’s that simple.”
