BWR Supports Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson To The U.S. Supreme Court!
We are excited about Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson's historic supreme court nomination. Currently there are no Black women on the highest court in the land, Jackson would be the first.
The Harvard Law School Grad is beyond qualified to serve as a Supreme Court justice. Jackson has served as a judge for the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, Vice Chair of the U.S. Sentencing Commission, federal public defender, a supreme court law clerk for Justice Breyer’s and editor of the Harvard Review. Currently, Jackson serves on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit.
We believe her professional and life experiences have prepared her for this critical position to advance justice and fairness in our great Nation. Black Women Rising is delighted about Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson's nomination. We wholeheartedly support Jackson and look forward to a fair and timely confirmation process.
Keep rising Supreme Court nominee, Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson!
