In response to Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson’s bipartisan Senate confirmation soon, Movon executive director Rahna Epting issued the following statement:
“Ketanji Brown Jackson is a prominent lawyer who has a remarkable record who was outstanding during his confirmation hearing, and I am very excited to be able to refer to him as ‘Justice Jackson’ very soon.
“Ketanji Brown Jackson’s nomination for President Biden’s Supreme Court is a historic moment for our country and an ongoing battle to ensure that justice under the law is equal. We’ve been in the Supreme Court for over 230 years without a black woman, a clear exception that was finally corrected by today’s bipartisan Senate vote.
“Unfortunately, but not surprisingly, his hearing was also an ugly cesspool of attack from the right, at the root of the MAGA conspiracy theory. This is one of the reasons why the Supreme Court needs multiple nominees to strike a balance, hijacked by right-wing powers that have created a conservative majority to issue sweeping judgments against our rights and freedoms as Americans. ”
