LCV Statement on Nomination of Judge Ketanji Jackson to Supreme Court

Washington D.C. — In anticipation of President Biden’s historic nomination of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to the Supreme Court, the League of Conservation Voters (LCV) issued the following statement from President Gene Karpinski:

“The historic nomination of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to the nation’s highest Court is a milestone in the fight for racial justice and equity. We applaud President Biden for fulfilling his campaign promise to nominate the first Black woman to the Supreme Court, showing that elections have consequences, and for selecting a fair-minded jurist who will uphold the promise of equal justice under law. This next Justice will impact our climate, environment, and voting rights for decades to come. We are confident that Judge Jackson will add a critical perspective and unique voice on the Court, and that her distinguished service on the D.C. Circuit and D.C. District Courts, as well as the U.S. Sentencing Commission, makes her exceptionally well-qualified. We look forward to the Senate swiftly confirming Jackson while simultaneously addressing massive challenges and transformational opportunities for our environment, democracy, and lower courts.“
