Take Action for Overdue Judicial Nominees!

Justice-centered courts are vital to protecting our democracy. The only way to bring balance to the federal judiciary is for the Senate to confirm equal justice champions right now, making room for it to act on many more between now and 2025.

This November, the Senate can make the choice to strengthen our federal courts. Here’s what Senators need to do:

  • First, the Senate must confirm at least ten nominees awaiting confirmation votes by the end of November. There are many nominees awaiting confirmation that have the backgrounds our democracy needs represented on the bench immediately. They are all long overdue for a final vote. Some of the nominees include:
    • Dale Ho
    • Natasha Merle
    • Nancy Abudu
    • Tiffany M. Cartwright
    • Rachel Bloomekatz
    • Bradley Garcia
    • Julie Rikelman
    • Jamal Whitehead
    • Araceli Martinez-Olguin
    • Justice Adrienne Nelson
  • Second, everyone voted out of committee this year must get a confirmation vote in our push to fill every seat by the end of the 117th Congress.
