Nomination of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson

February 25, 2022 - President Biden nominated federal appellate Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to the Supreme Court on Friday, setting in motion a historic confirmation process for the first Black woman to sit on the highest court in the nation. 

"In nominating Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to the Supreme Court, President Biden makes good on two major campaign promises,” said AFA President Sara Nelson. “As I wrote for the New York Times, 'America needs more judges who understand and support the rights of workers. For too long, the courts have sided with corporations over labor, fundamentally and perniciously reshaping American law, life and liberty.'&rdquo

AFA first noticed Judge Brown Jackson in 2018 when she ruled in favor of federal workers, issuing an injunction to halt three executive orders that gutted collective bargaining rights, due process, and union rights.

Judge Brown Jackson has a long record of protecting the constitutional rights of workers and everyday people. We urge swift confirmation of this eminently qualified jurist.
