Alicia Keys, Erykah Badu and more big names are joining a protest of U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh this Thursday, October 4, in D.C. As the FBI concludes its investigation into sexual assault allegations against Kavanaugh, the Senate Judiciary Committee will likely vote later this week.

The event begins at 12:30 p.m. with a march from the E. Barrett Prettyman U.C. Courthouse (where Kavanaugh currently presides) to the Supreme Court, organized by the Women's March

While nearly three dozen artists, authors, actors and producers are listed on the website, not all may actually show in D.C. "We are standing in solidarity with all, ready to protest this Thursday. We are with you from our hearts and minds. We will not all be in D.C. but ask you to walk out wherever you are," it reads.

Following the #CancelKavanaugh march, the Bravery Is Contagious concert — organized by the Party Majority PAC — will take place at around 7 p.m.“We anticipate a vote on the Senate floor to confirm Brett Kavanaugh as early as Friday,” organizers say. “It is critical we make our voices heard on the ground in Washington on Thursday.”

"If there was ever a moment when the voice of the people can come together in concert to change the fate of our nation, this is it," the website reads

"Arm in arm, organized and ready, every child, woman, and man, must take to the streets to protest this nomination. The legitimacy of the nation's highest court is at stake as is the future of our country."
