ERA Coalition Statement on Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson’s Supreme Court Confirmation

Black women have contributed significantly to American democracy, and yet we have never been represented in an institution whose decisions deeply impact our lives. Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson’s historic confirmation is a moment of both joy and validation, and is long overdue. Her tremendous record as a jurist demonstrates an understanding of how rulings impact some of the most vulnerable in our society, and she’s clearly the best person for the job.

BREAKING: Biden has nominated a Black woman to the Supreme Court!

You may have already heard, but President Biden just nominated Ketanji Brown Jackson, the first Black woman ever elevated by a President to join the Supreme Court of the United States!

Few Black women have served on the federal bench, and of course none have ever served on the highest court in the land. This historic nomination will change that.
