Last week, Justice Stephen Breyer announced he would retire from the Supreme Court, giving President Biden an opportunity to fulfill his campaign pledge to nominate the first Black woman to the Supreme Court. While the president reiterated that pledge last week, we know that our work is only just beginning.
We need to ensure that the nominee is a true progressive champion — and we need to get her confirmed. We need to continue the push for Supreme Court expansion, so that our new justice doesn’t spend the rest of her career writing dissenting opinions on a Supreme Court stolen by the Federalist Society. We need to keep our focus on the state courts, lower federal courts, and all of the venues in which people seek justice. And we need to continue to grow the movement dedicated to unrigging the law and building a legal system that works for people, not corporate profits.
It’s a lot to do, which is why we need all hands on deck. Lawyers and law students from around the country are invited to join us on Wednesday, February 2, at 6:30 ET/3:30 PT for an organizing call to discuss what comes next. RSVP below!
