WASHINGTON, DC— Following news that President Biden will nominate Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to the Supreme Court, making her the first Black woman and the first former public defender nominated to the Court, Demand Justice announced it will begin a seven-figure ad campaign to support her confirmation.

The first ad in the $1 million campaign quotes media reports calling Jackson “brilliant and meticulous,” with “top-flight academic qualifications,” and “truly exceptional.” It touts the fact that she has been confirmed by the Senate on a bipartisan basis three times in the past, and includes footage of former Republican Speaker of the House Paul Ryan praising her credentials.

This spot will run on national and Washington, DC-based cable. The campaign announced today also includes digital ads.

Jackson was included in Demand Justice’s shortlist of potential Supreme Court selections prepared prior to President Biden taking office. When Jackson was named to the DC Circuit Court of Appeals in 2021, Demand Justice strongly supported her confirmation, including with a six-figure media buy.
