In an historic moment, more than 230 years in the making, Judge Jackson has been confirmed to the U.S. Supreme Court! Judge Jackson is an eminently qualified and inspiring nominee. Her record indicates a deep commitment to public service and pursuing equal justice under the law - including safeguarding individual liberties and rights. She will be an outstanding addition to the Supreme Court.
We cannot lose sight of how meaningful this moment is — for Black women and girls, for people of color, for our judiciary, and for America. The highest court in our country should reflect the diversity of backgrounds and experiences we see in our country. Judge Jackson’s confirmation is one step toward making that a reality.
During her confirmation hearings, Judge Jackson acknowledged that Roe and Casey cases are settled law. Her confirmation is an important step in the critical work we must do to rebuild our courts, and our fight does not end with Judge Jackson. We are at a critical moment for civil and constitutional rights and cases that determine our fundamental liberties are making their way through our legal system.
