“This week, the US Senate will conduct confirmation hearings for Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson’s nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court. Judge Jackson is an excellent choice: a brilliant legal mind with a judicial temperament that will bolster the integrity of the Supreme Court, and a swift confirmation is in our country’s best interest.”

“Ensuring diverse voices amongst the justices is more important than ever as the court considers a calendar of cases that strike at the heart of who we are – and who we want to be – as a nation,” said Ald. Pat Dowell, candidate for the Democratic nomination for Illinois’ 1st Congressional District.
