Historic Confirmation of Ketanji Brown Jackson to Supreme Court

published on: April 7, 2022

Join us in celebration of the confirmation of Ketanji Brown Jackson! Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson’s exceptional legal career and record as a judge demonstrate, without any doubt, that she is highly qualified and committed to fairness, impartiality, and equal justice. For too long, wealthy and powerful special interests have rigged the political and economic systems to favor corporations instead of people. Today, we celebrate the Biden-Harris administration for keeping their campaign promise and Judge Brown Jackson’s incredible achievement. We are grateful that our nation’s newest Supreme Court Justice is someone who will put equal justice first, rather than picking and choosing whose rights they care about. Courts matter. Our work to create Florida’s future where every community enjoys clean air, clean water, parks, protected wildlands, and the security of a healthy and vibrant planet sustaining us today and for future generations will be forever impacted by the former Miamian Judge Brown Jackson joining the bench.

Thank you for lending your voice to our efforts to outreach Senator Scott and Senator Rubio asking them to vote to confirm Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson. While they ultimately let down their state once again, we will continue to hold them accountable for denying this historic and deserved nomination and confirmation of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson. Her appointment represents a recognition of our nation’s women of racial diversity. It offers hope that the highest levels of the United States’ judicial system will uphold its responsibility to enact decisions that will promote fairness, justice, and balance as we dream of a better society. 

Her background as a journalist is an asset that enriches her nomination as it denotes that the search for the truth has been a priority in her life. Therefore, her confirmation raises the professional, ethical, and multiracial level of the Federal Court system at a time when democracy and justice require a vigilant eye. FCV builds political power to protect our environment, protect our democracy, and create a healthy and sustainable future for everyone. We are looking forward to the further protection and expansion of our ability to do this work with our new Supreme Court Justice, former Miami resident, Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson!
