Washington D.C. – Following Judge Janet Protasiewicz’s recent victory in the primary for the upcoming Wisconsin Supreme Court election, People For the American Way is pleased to announce an endorsement of Judge Protasiewicz in the general election.
“Judge Janet Protasiewicz is the right choice for the Wisconsin Supreme Court,” said Svante Myrick, president of People For the American Way. “She has the experience, values and commitment to civil rights and equal justice that will make her an outstanding Supreme Court justice. With so many critically important issues at stake in the state, including reproductive freedom and the redistricting that underpins representative democracy itself, it’s vital to fill this Supreme Court seat with someone who will uphold the rights of all – not just the wealthy and powerful. And that’s Judge Protasiewicz.”
“I’m proud to have the endorsement of People For the American Way,” said Judge Protasiewicz. “We share values that include our commitment to a fair and impartial justice system that upholds the law and protects the rights of everyone. To the thousands of People For members in Wisconsin, I say thank you and that it has been my honor to serve our wonderful state for many years. I sincerely hope to have the privilege of continuing that service on our Supreme Court.”
