Advocates gathered in front of the Supreme Court on Friday, April 8, to celebrate the historic confirmation of incoming Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson. Jackson, a DC circuit court judge and former public defender, is the first Black woman to ever be appointed to SCOTUS. The family-friendly gathering included messages of support written in chalk and children draped in miniature Supreme Court robes.
