The United States Supreme Court has a profound impact on the lives of all Americans.  Its decisions help to determine where we can live, where we can go to school, who can vote and who can marry.  The court even has decided who would be President of the United States.

But of all the branches of government, the Supreme Court can be the most difficult to hold accountable to the American people.  AFJ works to ensure such accountability.  We fight to hold the court to the highest ethical standards, and we fight for a court that upholds the rights of everyday Americans, instead of bending to the will of corporate special interests.
