The following is a statement from Mayor Tishaura O. Jones on Judge Jackson's confirmation to the Supreme Court:

“This is a remarkable moment for our country. Justice Jackson is one of the most qualified nominees for the high court in our history, with vast experience in federal courts, private practice, and especially notable as a federal public defender. Her confirmation sets an example for little Black girls that staying true to who you are and what you believe, even in the face of baseless lies and dishonesty, can lead you to achieve great and wonderful things.”

“Being the First brings a harsh and unrelenting spotlight, but I know that Justice Jackson will be an outstanding addition to the court and a celebrated role model for generations.”
