AAPI Victory Fund Acting President Brad Jenkins issued the following statement:  

“AAPI Victory Fund applauds President Biden’s historic nomination of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to serve on the Supreme Court of the United States. Judge Jackson’s illustrious resume and reputation precede her, and we are thrilled that the President has nominated a Judge profoundly committed to equal justice under the law, and has displayed an incisive understanding of the impact the Supreme Court’s decisions have on the lives of the American people.

“Throughout her career, and diverse public service experience, Judge Jackson has proven herself an unequivocally devoted advocate for justice, equity and inclusion. Her unique appreciation for fairness and impartiality within the justice system, along with her exceptional ability to consider different points of view, will be a boon for both the Supreme Court and for Americans throughout our nation.

We extend our sincerest thanks to President Biden for his commitment to fulfilling promises made on the campaign trail, and we hope the Senate moves forward with a just hearing and confirmation for Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to the United States Supreme Court.”
