Demand a fair hearing for Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson

Demand a fair hearing for Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson

If confirmed to the Supreme Court, Judge Brown Jackson will have major influence over voting rights, the role of money in politics, fair redistricting, ethics in government – nearly every democracy issue that we care about.

But Mitch McConnell has shown he’ll stop at nothing to ensure a Supreme Court majority that’s in line with his anti-democracy agenda. We urge the Senate to do whatever it takes to make sure he can’t pull any dirty tricks this time and guarantee a fair hearing for Judge Brown Jackson.

Why is this important?

President Biden has just announced his nomination of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to the United States Supreme Court.

We’re encouraged to see Biden select someone with a strong record of upholding accountability in government and fighting for equity in the criminal legal system – a nominee who can end the historical shame of going more than two centuries without a Black woman on the Supreme Court.

But unfortunately, we must take immediate action to ensure that Mitch McConnell and other Senate Republicans can't abuse their power to block her nomination, like they did to Judge Merrick Garland in 2016. McConnell has already shown that he’ll try every dirty trick in the book to rig the process and secure a Supreme Court majority that’s in line with his extremist agenda.

If you recognize how high the stakes are for the future of our nation, add your name to demand a fair hearing for Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson today.
