The Senate Judiciary Committee’s confirmation hearings for Ketanji Brown Jackson are underway and if she’s confirmed, she will be the first Black woman to serve on the Supreme Court. Democrats have enough votes on their side to confirm her with no GOP support and a few Republicans could cross party lines to support her.
Black women traveled from all over the country to support Jackson’s confirmation and several women-led groups have held rallies in front of the Supreme Court to bolster support for Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson. The National Women’s Law Center Action Fund, She Will Rise, Black Women’s Roundtable, and other organizations hosted rallies pushing for the Senate to confirm Jackson.
The crew chimed in on how easily some senators switch so they won't be surprised if anything happens, but they're all rooting for her to be confirmed.
Uncle Steve said, "This sista is going to do fine at these hearings. Do you know what she's done to get to this hearing? The hearing is a piece of cake for her."
Indeed, Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson is an attorney and jurist who has served as a federal judge on the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit since 2021.
We're rooting for you!
