We are thrilled to see Demand Justice putting forth an affirmative, progressive vision of what the Supreme Court could look like. As this list shows, the legal profession is filled with diverse leaders who have built their careers fighting for justice for workers, consumers, and marginalized groups everywhere — people like Vanita Gupta, Sharon Block, Catherine Lhamon, and PPP Advisory Board Member Deepak Gupta. Those are the voices we need on the Supreme Court if we are to build a future in which the legal system works for everyday people, not corporations. We look forward to continued conversation about the importance of the courts throughout the 2020 election season and beyond.

Funding for the NLRB has been static since 2014, even as petitions to form a union are up 58% in 2022 compared with 2021.
If we don't fully fund the NLRB, the laws that protect unionizing workers go unenforced. Tell your senators that's unacceptable: https://actionnetwork.org/letters/fund-the-nlrb/
No serious person can believe that firms that make their money by defending corporations who destroy the environment and exploit workers are hostile to conservatism - they are its main defenders.
"What the Court of Appeals does affects the same sweep of life and law that the Supreme Court does. Courts like this need diversity of experience. They need judges in their collective who come in with different sensitivities and appreciations." https://spectrumlocalnews.com/nys/central-ny/ny-state-of-politics/2022/11/29/hochul-s-chief-judge-pick-will-be-closely-watched
