Meanwhile, in Europe



Today’s Action: Tell your senators to confirm Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson!

Supreme Court confirmation hearings for Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson are set to begin next week, and Trump lackeys in the US Senate are predictably drumming up bad-faith “concerns” with the historic, highly qualified nominee. Right-wing operatives and Republican officeholders alike are circulating baseless allegations of extremism — a tired, cynical tactic deployed to stymie numerous nominees put forward by President Biden for other prominent positions in the federal government.

Because Judge Jackson has been nominated to the high court by a Democratic president, she will almost certainly face brutal, antagonistic treatment from Republican senators eager to derail her historic nomination and showcase their far-right, pro-Trump bonafides on a national stage. The hypocrisy is obvious. Sen. Lindsey Graham — who voted just last year to confirm Judge Jackson to her current US circuit court seat — immediately began complaining that “the radical Left” had “won President Biden over yet again.” Republican opposition to Jackson’s groundbreaking appointment to the Supreme Court will be loud, duplicitous, and unified. We need ALL 50 Democratic senators on board to confirm Judge Jackson to the high court.

Call (202.224.3121) or email your senators and demand they confirm Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson without delay!

Judge Jackson’s qualifications are sterling. A former public defender, editor of the Harvard Law Review, and one-time clerk for the retiring Justice Stephen Breyer, she’s been endorsed by a wide range of supporters, including 850 women law professors AND the Fraternal Order of Police, which represents 400,000 members in the US law enforcement community.

As it stands, the Supreme Court is highly unrepresentative of the American people, thanks in part to Republican trickery and the fast-track confirmations of three justices nominated by ex-President Trump. Conservatives across the country, emboldened by the radically imbalanced court, are systematically disenfranchising marginalized communities and denying women access to critical healthcare. The risks of the far-right stranglehold on the high court do not end there — key priorities like climate initiatives, racial justice, LGBTQ rights, and election integrity are also in mortal danger.

Judge Jackson is an exceptional, supremely qualified nominee. She belongs on the high court!

Call (202.224.3121) or email your senators and tell them it’s time to confirm the first Black woman to the Supreme Court, the honorable Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson!
