On February, 2022, President Biden nominated Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit to the U.S. Supreme Court.
Judge Jackson is an outstanding nominee, with a deep and demonstrated commitment to civil rights. On the federal bench, she has shown her commitment to upholding laws that protect 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. In addition to her stellar legal credentials, Judge Jackson would bring a new understanding to the Court that would broaden its grasp of a multitude of issues and bring it closer to the ideal of delivering equal justice for all, not just the wealthy and powerful.
About Judge Jackson
Judge Jackson graduated from Harvard-Radcliffe College in 1992 with an A.B., magna cum laude, and went on to earn her J.D., cum laude, from Harvard Law School. After law school, she clerked for three federal judges, including Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer. She also worked in private practice, as a public defender in Washington, D.C., and on the U.S. Sentencing Commission, where she worked to end the unjust discrepancy between sentences for crack and powder cocaine.
Judge Jackson was confirmed to a seat on the District Court for the District of Columbia in 2013. In 2021, she was confirmed to a seat on the United States Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit.
