CWA Applauds the Historic Confirmation of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to the Supreme Court

Thursday, April 7, 2022

Washington, D.C. — Today’s confirmation of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to the Supreme Court, on a bipartisan, 53-47 vote, is a momentous step towards ensuring equal justice for generations to come.

Judge Jackson is an eminently qualified, fair minded, and brilliant jurist with a proven track record of defending the rights of working people over corporations and powerful special interests. She has supported workers who face religious and racial discrimination, and has opposed efforts to limit the scope of collective bargaining. Judge Jackson has a deep and demonstrated commitment to economic justice, environmental justice, voting rights, women’s rights, and other pressing human rights issues that impact the lives of everyday working people. As the first Black woman to be nominated for the nation’s highest court, she brings much needed diversity that is severely lacking in our entire justice system.

We applaud the Senate’s swift action, despite attempts by Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and other Republican leaders to derail her nomination, and we thank President Biden for his continued commitment to protecting workers’ rights and to ensuring that the Supreme Court is representative of the makeup and lived experiences of the American people.
