Washington DC- Following President Biden’s appointment of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia to the U.S. Supreme Court, People For the American Way President Ben Jealous issued the following statement:

“It is with great joy and emotion that we welcome the nomination of Ketanji Brown Jackson to the United States Supreme Court. Judge Jackson has a deep and demonstrated commitment to civil rights. On the federal bench, she has shown her commitment to respecting laws that protect people with disabilities, workers, immigrants, and freedom of speech. As a former public defender, she brings to the Supreme Court the point of view of someone who has seen the justice system through the eyes of the most vulnerable of our society. Her experience as a woman of color enriches her perspective on daily life in the United States and how the legal system affects the rights and lives of people and is much needed in our highest court. “This is a defining and late moment for our country, and we call on the Senate to move swiftly to confirm this remarkable candidacy.”
