The Texas AFL-CIO celebrated the historic confirmation of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to the U.S. Supreme Court. Texas AFL-CIO President Rick Levy issued this statement:  “Working Texans believe fundamentally in equal justice under the law, but that ideal cannot be attained when broad communities are kept outside the chambers of the highest court in the land. Today’s confirmation of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson as a U.S. Supreme Court Justice moves the court a step closer to the ideals of justice.”  “Judge Jackson’s extraordinary preparation and poise under fire did not waver during her confirmation hearings even as several Senators, including the two from Texas, plowed new standards of absurdity in seeking to undermine the nomination. Now more than ever, we believe President Biden made a great choice. The Texas AFL-CIO is confident working families will be in good hands as Justice Brown’s jurisprudence pursues equal justice for many years to come.”  The Texas AFL-CIO is the state labor federation consisting of 240,000 affiliated union members who advocate for working families in Texas.
