Progress Michigan Statement of Support for Nomination of Ketanji Brown Jackson

MICHIGAN – Following President Joe Biden’s historic nomination of Ketanji Brown Jackson to serve on the U. S. Supreme Court, progressive advocates in Michigan and across the country are speaking up to show their support. The following statement can be attributed to Lonnie Scott, executive director of Progress Michigan:

“Ketanji Brown Jackson is one of America’s brightest legal minds, and she is supremely qualified to serve on our nation’s highest court. From her history as a public defender to her current position as a federal judge, Judge Jackson has shown a remarkable commitment to equal justice and the rule of law. And, of course, after more than two full centuries of the Supreme Court being dominated by white men, Ketanji Brown Jackson will be the first Black woman to serve, making the U.S. Supreme Court more representative of our diverse nation. Judge Jackson has already been approved by a bipartisan majority of the Senate on three separate occasions, and we expect this time will be no different. We look forward to welcoming Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson to the U.S. Supreme Court and could not be more excited to see the vast impact she will have.
