In what Twitter is praising as a subtle but brilliant act of resistance, the domain BrettKavanaugh.com now leads to a website with a directory of resources for survivors of sexual assault. Large text on the site declares “We Believe Survivors.”
The Hill reports that nonpartisan advocacy organization Fix the Court is behind the website, which launched the day after Brett Kavanaugh was confirmed to the Supreme Court. Leading up to his confirmation, multiple women accused Kavanaugh of assault. In a hearing before the Senate Judiciray Committee, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford said Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her at a party when they were in high school.
Gabe Roth, Fix the Court’s executive director, said in a statement that the website was set up in support of Ford and other survivors, including Anita Hill. Roth bought BrettKavanaugh.com as well as the .org and .net domains three years ago in case they would “be useful in any forthcoming Supreme Court confirmation battles.”
“I am redirecting those three to a landing page with resources for victims of sexual assault,” Roth wrote in a statement. “I believe Dr. Ford. I believe Prof. Hill. I also believe that asking for forgiveness is a sign of maturity and strength, not weakness.”
In his own testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Kavanaugh denied the allegations against him. The Senate voted 50-48 to confirm him.
On Twitter, commentators commended the creation of the website, which includes links to the National Sexual Violence Resource Center; End Rape on Campus; and the Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network.
