Federal action of the week: Confirm Judge Jackson!
Confirmation hearings for Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson are expected to start March 21. As Republicans strategize on how to slow down her confirmation, we’re ready to fight to get her confirmed quickly to the Supreme Court. Both Sen. Feinstein and Sen. Padilla are on the Senate Judiciary Committee so they have strong influence on the confirmation battle. We’re calling them to let them know we’re glad of their support of Judge Jackson and that we want her confirmed ASAP!
An example call script and contact numbers are below.
