ITT Sound Off: An American Moment

Maria and Julio talk about Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson’s historic confirmation to the U.S. Supreme Court. They also get into the Oklahoma state legislature’s anti-abortion bill, and the dangerous repercussions of media language and framing around immigration.

ITT Staff Picks:

  • For The New York Times, reporter Linda Qiu spoke with Black women of the Harvard Black Law Students Association about what Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson’s confirmation to the Supreme Court means to them. 

  • Oklahoma’s abortion ban will have ripple effects throughout the country, with little hope that the Supreme Court will uphold Roe vs. Wade, reports Susan Rinkunas for Jezebel

  • “The vow to treat asylum-seekers with “dignity” was a broken campaign promise from Biden,” writes Julio in his latest piece for MSNBC
