How we fight for a #JusticeForAll
We’re at a pivotal and exciting moment for our country and our community: with your help, we’re about to confirm the first Black woman to the Supreme Court. On February 25th, President Joe Biden announced the nomination of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to the Supreme Court. Judge Jackson has a clear commitment to the promise of equal justice under law.
Judge Jackson is eminently qualified. She’s been confirmed three times to the federal bench, twice without any opposition. On the bench, she has shown her commitment to protecting the rights of all of us, including people with disabilities, workers, immigrants, and freedom of speech.
As a former public defender, she brings to the Supreme Court the perspective of someone who has seen the justice system through the eyes of our society’s most vulnerable. Her lived experience as a Black woman enriches her perspective about day-to-day life in the United States and how the legal system affects people’s rights and lives.
We’re so excited to be in this fight with you. Below, we’ve broken down one of the ways you can take action to support Judge Jackson’s nomination: How you can most effectively spread the word using social media.
How to Effectively Use Social Media
Our senators need to hear from us on social media, and we need to build momentum to make sure Judge Jackson becomes Justice Jackson.
Here are some tips for making your social media as impactful as possible in the fight for a #JusticeForAll.
- Be tight and consistent with your messaging. Millions of social media posts are sent every day. It’s hard to break through individually – but it’s easier if we act as a movement. Use the resources organizations and movements you trust are putting together to help amplify our support for Judge Jackson across social media platforms.
- Tag your senators. It’s important to be in those notifications! Tag them on Twitter, post to their Facebook pages, tag them and comment on their Instagrams. If you don’t tag your senator, the likelihood that they ever see your message is slim to none.
- Use a consistent hashtag. Bring in the full power and momentum of the movement to your digital conversation with your senators. Using the right hashtags gives senators, their staff, and other people in the movement the ability to track and join in the conversation. Right now, we’re using #JusticeForAll and #ConfirmJackson.
- Flood social media with accurate and positive information. We’re already seeing the Far Right ramp up disinformation and attacks on Judge Jackson’s record and character. It’s important that we don’t repeat disinformation or the attacks – but we can counter them by sharing accurate, positive information about Judge Jackson and her record.
