The Senate should confirm Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court, and quickly

When faced with challenging times, our country has always come together to protect our essential freedoms and ensure justice is available to all. The passing of a Supreme Court justice is one of these challenges — and our country has the strength to overcome it. Our Founding Fathers designed a system to ensure the highest court of the land is made up of the best legal minds in the country, who are ready to apply the law fairly and evenly, as written in the Constitution.

In support of these ideals of justice and fairness, the Opportunity Solutions Project strongly urges the Senate to promptly confirm President Trump’s nominee for the Supreme Court, Judge Amy Coney Barrett. Judge Barrett represents the best of American values on justice, patience, hard work, and determination. She stands a cut above many other similarly qualified jurists with her exemplary record of interpreting the Constitution as written.

Barrett is an exceptional nominee, having graduated at the top of her class at Notre Dame Law School before clerking for Justice Antonin Scalia. After teaching at Notre Dame for 15 years, she was appointed as a judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit in 2017.
