Sexual violence vigil protests Justice Brett Kavanaugh

Brett Kavanaugh was sworn into the Supreme Court this week, but not everyone is congratulating the justice on his new gig.

A sexual violence vigil was held on Tuesday in front of the Bloomington Center for Performing Arts to support survivors of sexual assault.

Many shared their experiences with sexual violence, ranging from being flashed to incest.

This is the second Stand Up for Social Justice that has focused on Kavanaugh.

“He does not deserve to be on the supreme court, we believe Dr. Ford,” organizer Linda Unterman said.

“I think [his confirmation] tells survivors that the country is not supporting them.”

The vigils are held every second Tuesday of the month on the lawn in front of the BCPA, usually focusing on different topics each month.
