is Now a Resource for Survivors of Sexual Assault

The non-profit Fix The Court bought the URL three years ago in anticipation of Supreme Court confirmations.

A pro-transparency organization called Fix The Court owns, which means that the website with Kavanaugh’s namesake now leads to a page that begins “We Believe Survivors.” Following Kavanaugh’s contested Supreme Court confirmation amidst multiple sexual assault allegations made against him, the judge’s most obvious web address will now offer a variety of resources to survivors of sexual assault.

Fix The Court’s executive director Gabe Roth purchased the URL three years ago, anticipating future possible Supreme Court confirmations. “I believe Dr. Ford. I believe Prof. Hill. I also believe that asking for forgiveness is a sign of maturity and strength, not weakness,” Roth wrote in a statement.

The website’s homepage now features links to three resources: the National Sexual Violence Resource Center, End Rape on Campus, and the Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network.

“This past month, thousands of survivors came forward to tell their stories. We applaud your bravery. We believe you,” the page reads.
