Thank President Biden for his Supreme Court promise

Thank President Biden for his Supreme Court promise

Thank President Biden for affirming his commitment to nominating extraordinary, experienced Black woman to serve on the Supreme Court who will side with our rights and freedoms over the interests of corporations and Big Money—and commit to confronting any racist and sexist attacks!

Why is this important?

With the retirement of Justice Stephen Breyer, President Biden has one of the most important decisions of his presidency: whom to nominate for the Supreme Court.

Here's the good news: President Biden has reaffirmed his campaign pledge to nominate the first Black woman to serve as a justice on the highest court in the country. As President Biden wrote, "The person I nominate to replace Justice Breyer will be someone with extraordinary qualifications. Character, experience, and integrity. And they will be the first Black woman nominated to the United States Supreme Court."

It's long past time for a Black woman to serve on the Supreme Court, someone someone who is reflective of Black communities and communities of color that are constantly pushed to the margins. And his nominee must be someone who will side with individual rights and liberties and justice for our communities over corporate power and the interests of Big Money.

Sadly, we know that the right wing will hurl racist and sexist vitriol and disinformation at any nominee. In fact, Fox News has already begun. It's our responsibility to support this nominee against such attacks, confront the venom and disinformation, and demand political leaders and news media do the same.

This is one step in the longer work of expanding and rebalancing the Supreme Court that has been taken over by right-wing power grabs—and in doing so to restore integrity to the court.

Add your name to THANK PRESIDENT BIDEN for his commitment to nominate the first Black woman to the Supreme Court—and to affirm your commitment to get his back, fight for confirmation, and push back against any racist and sexist attacks.

We'll share these thanks with the White House and with the public to build momentum for an exceptional nominee and to prepare for the fights ahead.
