Celebrating Firsts In the Judiciary Advances Diversity And Inclusion

I love celebrating firsts!!!

And since My Thing is Courts, I love to see when color, gender, and other diversity barriers are broken in judgeships, firm partnerships, and court leadership. That is when we as a Country are living out our promise of Justice for all!

Celebrating Firsts in the judiciary advances diversity, equity, inclusion, and justice.

Firsts signal what can be done. A young Black, Muslim, or LBGTQ+ person no longer has to question if they can have a career as a judge. They now have proof, a living and breathing role model.

Firsts expand our reality. Society’s limited thinking of what a lawyer, partner, court administrator, or judge looks like is trashed.

Firsts are powerful!

Nusrat Choudhury, if confirmed, would be The First Bangladeshi American and first Muslim woman to serve on the federal bench and the second Muslim American.

Arianna Freeman, if confirmed, would be The First Black woman to serve on the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.

I feel a celebration in the air!!
