Washington D.C. –  In response to President Joe Biden nominating Judge Kentanji Brown Jackson to the Supreme Court Héctor Sánchez Barba, the Executive Director and CEO of Mi Familia Vota released the following statement: 

“Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson’s nomination to the Supreme Court of the United States is an incredible moment in American history. 

We look forward to learning more during the confirmation process about Judge Jackson’s commitment to advancing racial and social equity and how she will approach the multitude of legal issues that affect Our communities — including voting rights, labor issues, criminal justice, immigration, along with many others.

Judge Jackson’s extraordinary breadth of experience in the nation’s second-highest court, makes her a strong and qualified nominee. We will watch the confirmation process closely and advocate for Senators to assess Judge Jackson to the Supreme Court so that she may apply her perspective, professional experience, and fidelity to the law and the lasting impact she will have on the next generation of Latinos and all Americans.”
