TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - In Tallahassee on Friday, the National Organization for Women held a rally against Brett Kavanaugh's nomination.  

The organization wanted to show that they were against Kavanaugh's confirmation as the next Supreme Court Justice and to show that they were against his stances on abortion and racial justice.

They were also standing in solidarity with Christine Blasey Ford, Deborah Reynolds, and others who shared their stories of sexual assault.  

"It's very important that we get candidates and representative in office that support women's rights and issues and support reproductive justice and freedoms," said FSU student Millie Zehnder. "With him appointed the new supreme court justice, that threatens these rights and issues and it's really important that we get all our peers and people in our community informed." 

The rally began at Florida State University's Wescott Fountain and they marched as a group to the Florida Capitol's Historic Museum.
