The Hispanic Heritage Foundation strongly supports the nomination of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson for the Supreme Court of the United States

Hispanic Heritage Foundation

WASHINGTON, D.C – Judge Jackson is a distinguished and brilliant jurist with unchallengeable credentials and an unwavering commitment to fairness and justice. She is a dedicated public servant who has served this nation in a variety of manners, from her experience as a federal public defender, the Vice-Chair of the United States Sentencing Commission, the D.C. District Court, and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit. When confirmed, she will be the first federal public defender to ever sit on the court and the first justice with substantial criminal defense experience since Thurgood Marshall, who serves as a source of inspiration for our organization. Judge Jackson will bring a much-needed voice and understanding to the nation’s highest court.

Judge Jackson’s nomination to the Supreme Court is one of historical significance and illustrates the utmost importance of building a Court and a federal judiciary that reflects the vast and growing diversity of this nation joining Justice Sonia Sotomayor and others.

Once confirmed to the Supreme Court, Judge Jackson will thoughtfully consider a multitude of issues impacting the Latino community. On the Court, Judge Jackson will help shape the lives of millions of Americans, including Latinos, for generations to come. The Hispanic Heritage Foundation is confident that our future is in capable hands with Judge Jackson, who will decide and rule with great respect, care, relatable real-world experience, compassion, and dignity.

We urge the Senate to confirm Judge Jackson to the Supreme Court.

Jose Antonio Tijerino, President and CEO of the Hispanic Heritage Foundation
