The protest, called “Bravery Is Contagious,” urges people across the country to take to the streets and call their senators to speak out against Kavanaugh getting a lifetime appointment to the nation’s highest court.

“If there was ever a moment when the voice of the people can come together in concert to change the fate of our nation, this is it,” an online invitation to the protest reads. “Arm in arm, organized and ready, every child, woman, and man, must take to the streets to protest this nomination.”

The invite goes on to say, “The legitimacy of the nation’s highest court is at stake as is the future of our country.”

Organizers say the #CANCELKAVANAUGH protest march will start at the Barrett Prettyman Federal Courthouse on Oct. 4 at 12:30 EDT, and end at the Supreme Court.

The gathering is organized by Party Majority PAC, according to The Washington Post. It’s timed to take place the day before an expected Senate vote to confirm Kavanaugh.

Protest follows a national walkout last week in support of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, who has accused Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct.

While not all the celebrities backing the effort to stop Kavanaugh will attend Thursday’s protest, organizers are urging the celebs and others to “walk out wherever you are.”
