DEMAND JUSTICE LAUNCHES PRINT AD THANKING SENS. RON WYDEN AND JEFF MERKLEY

WASHINGTON, DC—On Friday, Demand Justice announced a new print ad campaign thanking Oregon Senators Ron Wyden and Jeff Merkley for recommending Jennifer Sung for the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit. 

“Sung’s extensive experience in union-side labor law is exactly what is needed to balance a judiciary that is stacked against workers,” said Demand Justice Chief Counsel Chris Kang.

If confirmed, Sung would be the first AAPI judge from Oregon on the Ninth Circuit and the first circuit judge with a background in union-side labor law confirmed in over a decade.

The ad highlights Sung’s support from labor unions, including Oregon AFSCME, Oregon Education Association and SEIU. It will run in the Northwest Labor Press newsletter beginning September 3rd. 

A copy of the ad can be found below.
