DEMAND JUSTICE KICKS OFF SIX-FIGURE AD CAMPAIGN, TARGETED TO BLACK AUDIENCES, IN SUPPORT OF KETANJI BROWN JACKSON

Actress Yvette Nicole Brown voices the ad.

WASHINGTON, DC— Demand Justice has launched a six-figure, digital and radio ad campaign reaching Black audiences to build support for the confirmation of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to the D.C. Circuit. The ad also highlights other former public defenders nominated by President Biden to top judgeships.

The ad is voiced by actress and host Yvette Nicole Brown. It highlights Jackson’s experience working as a public defender and as Vice Chair of the United States Sentencing Commission.

The ad says: “Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson: President Biden’s choice for one of the highest courts in the land. A trailblazing champion for equal justice under the law, she helped reform the justice system and defend those who couldn’t afford a lawyer. Now, she is the first in a wave of Biden judges who will uphold the rights of all of us, not just the rich and powerful. Tell your senators: confirm President Biden’s judges, starting with Ketanji Brown Jackson.”

The video ad will run on digital platforms, and a radio version of the ad will run in a dozen markets, including Atlanta, Detroit, Philadelphia, and Milwaukee.
