Woori Center Demands PA Senators to Stand UP for PA Workers and Community Members

Lansdale, PA- Ruth Bader Ginsberg dedicated her career to standing up for women and  disenfranchised community members. We mourn the loss and send our deepest condolences to her family. With the fight for the nomination of a new justice for SCOTUS, we ask PA U.S. Senators to pause and consider the needs of PA workers and community members. The Supreme Court makes decisions that impact all of our daily lives, the Woori Center demands that PA U.S. Senators, Pat Toomey and Bob Casey, support their constituents. 

There is no reason to rush a Supreme Court Justice nomination before the election that will have a large impact on the daily lives of workers, community members, and small businesses  while there is pending and needed legislation in Congress right now that takes precedence and priority. The pandemic has caused irrevocable losses for Pennsylvania; thousands of workers are unemployed or underemployed, being evicted, and many community members are worried what will happen to them if they get sick with COVID-19.  The immediate needs of our community members must be prioritized by our Senators Toomey and Casey now.

Woori Center urges Senator Toomey and Casey to put a pause on the SCOTUS nomination process to ensure that the next Supreme Court judge will represent the needs of Pennsylvania workers, community members, and small businesses.  They must prioritize COVID-19 relief legislation (the HEROES Act) that addresses Pennsylvania and the country’s needs right now during the pandemic.
