Come to Terms: A Project of Fix the Court

RALLY developed and launched Come to Terms: A Project of Fix the Court, an ambitious new initiative that advocates for single, 18-year terms for Supreme Court justices. The initiative  breathed new life into a stagnant, nonpartisan government reform that is rarely discussed outside of academia. In order to gain support from both liberal and conservative influencers, RALLY developed bifurcated messaging, tactics and spokespeople. This approach resulted in support  for Supreme Court term limits from diverse ideological voices including the Los Angeles Times Editorial Board and presidential candidates Sen. Rand Paul and Gov. Mike Huckabee.

Since launching officially in Washington, D.C. at an event in partnership with POLITICO, Come To Terms’ 18-year term limit proposal has been featured in the Los Angeles Times, the Baltimore Sun, the Washington Examiner,  the New Republic, POLITICO, Townhall, the Daily Caller, Aljazeera America, MSNBC’s The Cycle, Above the Law blog, the National Law Journal and TheBlaze, among other outlets. The Come to Terms reform movement continues to be bolstered by new polling showing an increasing number of Americans disapprove of the Supreme Court, particularly for its perceived politicization and partisanship.
