February 25, 2022
Washington, DC — Today, President Biden announced the nomination of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to the Supreme Court of the United States. Judge Jackson is a highly-qualified legal mind, who has been at the forefront of the legal field for decades. Once confirmed, she will make history as the first Black woman to serve as a Supreme Court Justice. Judge Jackson holds a wide range of experiences as a public defender, as vice chair of the U.S. Sentencing Commission, as a federal district judge, and most recently as a judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit.
Statement from DAGA Co-Chairs Nevada AG Aaron Ford and Delaware AG Kathy Jennings:“We proudly support President Biden’s historic nomination of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to the Supreme Court. With her years of experience serving as a public defender and a federal district judge, Judge Jackson is extremely qualified to join our nation’s highest court.
“From voting rights, to reproductive rights, to safeguarding our democracy, the Supreme Court is an essential component in upholding the United States Constitution and protecting these freedoms for all Americans. For years, Judge Jackson has worked to ensure equal justice under the law and has proven herself to be an exceptional jurist. We are confident that she will make an outstanding Supreme Court Justice.
“Now that a nominee has been named, we are calling on the U.S. Senate to move through the confirmation process expeditiously and put Judge Jackson on the bench.”
