About Us

Why Courts Matter- PA is a project of the Center for American Progress, led by The Pennsylvania PBPC_logoBudget and Policy Center.

No matter the issue — voting rights, employment discrimination, environmental regulation, health care, immigration — our federal judiciary plays an important role in the lives of hardworking Americans.

The Why Courts Matter – Pennsylvania coalition plays a unique role in educating Pennsylvanians about the importance of the federal judiciary and how it affects our daily lives.

The issues you care about the most will eventually be arbitrated in federal courts. From our district courts up to the U.S. Supreme Court, we must advocate for mainstream, independent, fair, and diverse judicial nominees who will not be rubber stamps for an out-of-control administration.
