Swiftly confirm Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to the Supreme Court
President Biden made one of the most important decisions of his presidency and officially nominated Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to the Supreme Court.
Judge Jackson is exceptionally qualified and has the experience, character, and bipartisan support needed to serve on the nation’s highest court—and is the first Black woman nominated in history. She’s already been confirmed three times on a bipartisan vote for prior roles, and there’s no reason not to expect the same as she is now considered for the Supreme Court.
Why is this important?
It’s long overdue to have a Black woman serve on the Supreme Court, and now that President Biden has fulfilled his promise to nominate one, it’s up to us to advocate for a swift and effective nomination process. And we must all commit to having her back against the racism and vitriol that's sure to confront her.
With experience as a public defender, Judge Jackson puts people first and has the perspective needed to make critical decisions on voting rights, abortion rights, and other issues impacting our country.
The first step to her confirmation is for the Judiciary Committee to host a series of hearings to hear about her background and qualifications. It’s up to the Judiciary Committee to ensure that this process goes smoothly and is held with the utmost respect that she deserves.
Ultimately, the Supreme Court must be expanded and rebalanced to protect the rights of everyone across the country. Confirming Judge Jackson won't fix the ideological bias besetting the court, but it will set us once again on the right path.
