Who Is Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson?
Judge Brown Jackson Will Bring A Different Perspective To SCOTUS
Judge Brown Jackson is widely regarded as a fair judge who defends the rights of every individual. She has drawn praise for using her previous experience as a public defender to bring an understanding of the inequalities of the judicial system for those who are not wealthy and privileged.
President Biden has stated that he wanted to make the Supreme Court more representative of the experiences of all Americans. Judge Brown Jackson will bring a different perspective to the Supreme Court.
Judge Jackson was widely regarded as the frontrunner when Biden announced that he would keep his promise and nominate an African-American woman to the Supreme Court.
She is more than qualified and should be a Supreme Court Justice that the nation can be proud of.
