Sen. McCrory Releases Statement on Confirmation of Ketanji Brown Jackson to Serve on the Supreme Court

The Confirmation of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson Will Make Her the First Black Woman to Serve on the U.S. Supreme Court

State Senator Doug McCrory (D-Hartford, Bloomfield and Windsor) released the following statement after the United States Senate voted to confirm Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to serve on the Supreme Court of the United States:

“The confirmation of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to serve on the U.S. Supreme Court finally breaks a shameful glass ceiling that has existed for far too long and will make the court more representative of the people it serves. Soon-to-be Justice Jackson shatters that barrier on the strength of her exceptional credentials and experience. She understands the deeply personal role that our justice system has in people’s lives through her own lived experiences and time as a public defender, judge, and sitting on the U.S. Sentencing Commission,” said Sen. McCrory.

“Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson follows in the legacy of countless Black women throughout our nation’s history who have moved us closer to the promise of equal justice under law, while pushing back on discrimination and bias thrown at them,” Sen. McCrory continued. “For years to come, soon-to-be Justice Jackson will inspire young Black girls and women across our country to pursue their dreams, challenge systemic inequities, and persevere no matter what obstacles come their way.”
