<pThe website says it is highlighting sexual assault as a national focus and that the country "can and should do more to prevent it and to support those who have experienced it."

<pFix the Court, a non-partisan grassroots judicial reform organization, purchased Kavanaugh's URL, which wasn't secured, years ago. The group also purchased brettkavanaugh.org and brettkavanaugh.net domain names — all now resource pages for sexual assault survivors as well.

<pFrustrated with President Trump's comments on Kavanaugh at Monday's White House ceremony, Executive Director of Fix the Court Gabe Roth, decided to turn the website into a resource for survivors.

<p"I believe Dr. Ford," Roth told ABC News, referring to California professor Christine Blasey Ford, who has accused Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her while they were both in high school. He strongly denies the allegation, saying it never happened.

<p"For such a blanket statement to be made, it was ridiculous and not presidential," Roth said referring to Trump's public apology to Kavanaugh "on behalf of the nation" during Kavanaugh's swearing-in ceremony Monday.

<p"On behalf of the nation, I'd like to apologize to Brad and the entire a Kavanaugh family for the terrible pain and suffering you've been forced to endure," Trump said. "Those who stepped forward to serve our country deserve a fair and dignified evaluation. Not a campaign of political and personal destruction based on lies and deception."

<pRoth bought the domain three years ago in preparation of upcoming Supreme Court battles and presidential election — saying he knew "most justices were going to retire" due to their ages. Roth also claimed it was a "good way to promote" his organization.
