Town Hall in Philadelphia Discusses Importance of Federal Courts and Need for Ethics Reform

PHILADELPHIA — The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, the New Pennsylvania Project, and POWER Interfaith hosted a motivating and educational discussion about the importance of our federal courts — including the U.S. Supreme Court — to Pennsylvanians and all people in America. Cherri Gregg of WHYY moderated the conversation, which praised the Senate’s recent confirmation of professionally and demographically diverse judges to the federal bench and uplifted the need for ethics reform. Especially in the wake of recent Supreme Court rulings rolling back affirmative action in higher education, LGBTQ rights, student loan debt relief, and reproductive rights, it is increasingly clear how the decisions issued by our highest court — and by all federal courts — profoundly impact millions of people and are antithetical to the kind of country we all deserve.
