WASHINGTON, D.C. — As the Senate begins confirmation hearings for Supreme Court nominee Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson, Stand Up America’s Executive Director Christina Harvey remarked on the historic moment and urged the Senate to quickly confirm her to the bench:

“This week, Americans will witness Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson’s path to becoming the first Black woman to serve on the nation’s highest court, an institution long dominated by white men. From the moment Judge Jackson was announced as President Biden’s nominee, it was clear her exceptional qualifications and experience as a public defender would bring an invaluable perspective to the Supreme Court. 
“Senate Republicans have stumbled over themselves to justify their opposition to this supremely qualified candidate. Instead of carrying out their constitutionally mandated duty to ‘advise and consent,’ they’re choosing to lie and fearmonger. President Biden has honored his promise to nominate a justice to the Court that truly reflects the American public, and now the Senate must do its part by confirming Ketanji Brown Jackson.”
