Since the Supreme Court was founded in 1789, there have been 115 Supreme Court Justices… 108 have been white men.
Judge Jackson would be the first Black woman to serve on the Supreme Court and the second woman of color. She’s eminently qualified. Her voice and ability to bring her unique lived experience into her opinions will be key to upholding equal justice principles and pushing back on unfairness in the Court’s decisions.
Judge Jackson is exactly the right person for the job, and the National Partnership urges the Senate to swiftly confirm her through a fair, transparent, and respectful process.
