Demand Voting Rights Legislation

The issue: States across the country are making it more difficult to vote, particularly for people of color, people with disabilities, and low-income people.  

The good news: The Freedom to Vote: John R. Lewis Act will ensure the ability for every American to participate in safe, accessible, and transparent elections.  

Our task: Demand our senators pass this bill before it is too late for our democracy.

Confirm Qualified, Fair, and Independent Judicial Nominees

  • The issue: Federal judges make decisions that affect our daily lives, and the majority of the bench is not reflective of the communities they serve.
  • The good news: President Biden’s nominees who would bring much-needed diversity and experience to the federal bench.
  • Our task: Urge your senators to support fair, qualified, and independent nominees representing a diversity of backgrounds.

While the Supreme Court makes the headlines, our district and circuit courts make the final call in over ninety-nine percent of federal cases. Over 400,000 cases are filed each year in our federal district and circuit courts, and these cases affect countless people every day. Federal judges who serve in lifetime appointments must be fair, independent, and qualified with a commitment to constitutional rights for everyone.

NCJW believes in a federal judiciary that is of and for the people.
