Alicia Keys, Michael Stipe and other celebrities are gearing up to lead a protest the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh outside the Supreme Court on Thursday night.

The "Bravery Is Contagious" event, which was organized by Party Majority PAC, will reportedly feature entertainers including Erykah Badu, Maggie Gyllenhaal and Esperanza Spalding, as well as other prominent figures such as Ariana Huffington.

In an online advertisement of the event, which was first reported by The Washington Post on Tuesday, the PAC calls on constituents to contact their senators to “say no to Kavanaugh.”

The message also provides the number for the Senate’s main switchboard, in addition to the office numbers for several senators who are seen as possible swing votes on Kavanaugh's Supreme Court nomination, including Sens.

“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,” a message from the PAC 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,” the message continues. 

The protest comes as Kavanaugh faces ongoing controversy surrounding sexual misconduct allegations from multiple accusers.

Last week, Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford, a college professor who has accused Kavanaugh of sexual assault when they were in high school, testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee about the allegations.

Kavanaugh denied Ford’s allegations and said during his own testimony before the panel that he did not doubt that Ford had experienced a traumatic event but that he has "never sexually assaulted anyone." 

The Judiciary panel voted to advance Kavanaugh's nomination to the full Senate, but the FBI has been given a week to reopen its background check into him to look closer at the allegations.
