Celebrating Black History Month – Making Court History!
SWAC Celebrates President Biden’s historic nomination of U.S. Circuit Judge Kentanji Brown Jackson to serve as the next U.S. Supreme Court Justice and the first Black woman to serve in our nation’s highest court! Judge Jackson is deeply qualified with a proven record of embracing equal justice above all else. Judge Jackson clerked for Justice Breyer, worked as a public defender, served on the bipartisan U.S. Sentencing Commission, and served as a judge on the District Court and D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals.
THIS IS THE TIME…
To let our voices be strong. To seek justice for black lives lost. To advocate for policies that root out
implicit biases and structural racism. To seek racial reconciliation and healing.

As we journey through this unprecedented time of COVID-19, we have the power to decide how we respond.
We, the women of SWAC stand with our city leadership to continue to flatten the curve as they begin building
the road map to reopen our city. As mothers, sisters, daughters, caregivers and advocates for the advancement
of women and girls – we challenge you to do the same.
This pandemic sees no boundaries especially when it involves women who represent a disproportionate
percentage of the workforce as essential workers – childcare (93%), caregivers (75%), hospital workers (75%),
retail and grocery stores (66%), and fast food/counter workers (63%).
