Fixing Our Courts with Tamara Brummer of Demand Justice

The Trump administration, with a complicit Senate, completely overhauled the United States judiciary-filling it unqualified and far-right extremist activist judges all the way to the Supreme Court. To discuss the impact of these appointments and what can be done about them, we’ve invited Tamara Brummer to the show. Tamara is the Senior Advisor for Engagement and Outreach for Demand Justice, an organization founded in 2018 with the goal of reforming and protecting the American judiciary.
