WASHINGTON, DC – America Votes Senior Leadership Team issued the following statement today celebrating President Biden’s nomination of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to the U.S. Supreme Court.

“Judge Jackson’s brilliant legal mind, impeccable character, and unwavering dedication to equal justice under law are precisely what we need on the Court at a time when the very foundations of American democracy are under assault. Her breadth of experience, from the public defender’s office to federal appellate judge, are proof that we can count on Judge Jackson to stand up for the constitutional rights of every person in this country.
