Courts matter to educators, their students, and their families. Many important cases come before federal courts and impact our communities daily—they determine what happens in our schools, who has access to the ballot box and health care, labor and disability rights, LGBTQ+ equality, protections for immigrants, gun safety, and more.
Our judiciary must uphold the rights of all people in America, not just the wealthy and the powerful. To ensure equal justice under law, we need a federal judiciary that looks more like America, composed of fair-minded people from a variety of backgrounds.
To continue recent progress in reshaping the federal judiciary to reflect America today, urge your senators to swiftly confirm President Biden’s nominees, especially District of Columbia Superior Court Judge Todd Edelman’s nomination to the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia and Judge Mustafa Kasubhai’s nomination to the U.S. District Court for the District of Oregon.
Voicing your support does make a difference! After more than a year of advocacy by NEA, our allies and members, the Senate has confirmed the appointments of Nancy Abudu to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit, Casey Pitts to the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, and Nusrat Choudhury to the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York.
