Today We Make Herstory

The Senate Judiciary Committee begins its consideration of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson, the first Black woman nominated to the US Supreme Court. Judge Jackson is highly qualified, having served on the US Sentencing Commission, the US District Court for the District of Columbia, and the US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit. Her record demonstrates that she is fair, independent, and qualified. NCJW believes in a federal judiciary that is of and for the people. We hold a vision of a Supreme Court that dismantles legacies of white supremacy by being composed of justices who represent the diversity of America and are committed to equal justice for all. As people of faith, we have a moral obligation to ensure Justices on our highest court are committed to equality under the law. Judge Jackson is that Justice. Let’s help get her confirmed! Contact your senators today to urge their support for Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson.
The Issue: The US Supreme Court is the highest court, serving as the last word on our rights. With Justice Breyer’s retirement announcement, President Biden has the opportunity to nominate a justice who is not only fair, independent, and qualified, but who would bring much needed diversity to the Court.  

The Good News: President Biden nominated Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to the Supreme Court. If confirmed, Judge Jackson would be the first Black woman in history to sit on the Court.   

Our Task: Urge your senators to confirm Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to the United States Supreme Court.
