"We're excited to finally call her Justice Jackson. It has a nice ring to it. Not only do we finally have a Black woman on the bench, but a highly qualified professional who will represent Black women, and all Americans, well. Jackson will bring much more than a vote in Supreme Court decisions, she will bring her voice. And in the wake of such far-right extremism poisoning our nation's highest court, she will bring a voice — and a vote — of compassion, respect for human rights, and honor for the rule of law. 

After gutting our right to vote, attacking women's reproductive rights and undoing every inch of democracy we bled for, today is by far the greatest news for Black America coming out of this Supreme Court in a long, long time."

Derrick Lewis - Youth & College Hero
