If you care about civil liberties, clean air, privacy, reproductive rights, social justice, corporate accountability, equality, and fairness, then you care about our federal courts.
Every day, federal judges protect the Constitution, place a check on overzealous legislatures, and help Americans find justice.
AFJ's Judicial Selection Project monitors and assesses federal judicial nominations to ensure our courts are staffed with highly-qualified judges that will safeguard the rights of all Americans... not just the privileged few.

Everyone concerned with justice and the rule of law in America should carefully read the reports about the state of the judiciary from the widely respected Alliance For Justice, which detail the large number of judicial vacancies that exist throughout the federal court system, the damage this does to our republic of laws, and the history of former presidents “packing the court” (my phrase) with younger “conservative” judges ....
The Alliance for Justice reports are so detailed, comprehensive and invaluable they should be read by everyone, from the president to Congress and the media.
