President Joe Biden makes monumental strides towards representative democracy by nominating Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to Supreme Court of the United States
New York, New York (Feb. 28, 2022) President Joe Biden has announced his Supreme Court nominee – Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson. If confirmed, she will be the first African American woman to serve on the Supreme Court of the United States as the 116th Associate Justice.
“ReflectUS congratulates Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson, an experienced federal judge with impressive academic and legal credentials, on her nomination to serve as 116th Associate Justice of the Supreme Court,” said ReflectUS CEO Tiffany Gardner.
Judge Jackson is a trailblazer with an extensive career that makes her exceptionally qualified for this historic nomination. Judge Jackson began her career as a public defender who represented individuals who could not afford legal representation. This would make her the first former federal public defender to serve on the Supreme Court. ReflectUS strongly believes the judicial system should reflect the diversity of our nation and has played an active role in increasing women’s representation at all levels of government service. ReflectUS proudly supports accelerating women’s leadership in all the places where decisions are made, especially in the highest court of our nation.
“I want to commend Judge Jackson on her historic nomination to serve as the first African American woman on the U.S. Supreme Court. As a fellow lawyer, her journey from the Miami public school system to Harvard Law School, to her historic nomination, is nothing short of an inspiration to me personally and to our entire nation,” shared Tiffany Gardner.
The ReflectUS Coalition is dedicated to supporting and amplifying women as they seek public leadership opportunities. This historical moment is the first of many that ReflectUS hopes to see in the near future.
