UCLA Alumni Demand that Senate Confirm Justice Brown Now

    May 18, 2005, Los Angeles, California –  The UCLA Bruin Alumni Association today announced Confirm Brown Now!, a campaign to urge the United States Senate to confirm UCLA Law alumni Justice Janice Rogers Brown.

    The daughter of sharecroppers in rural, segregated Alabama in the 1950s, Brown worked her way through UCLA law school as a single mother, and has consistently earned praise from both side of the aisle.  In one of the most liberal states in the nation, Brown earned 75% approval from voters, and the endorsement of both the Los Angeles Times and the San Francisco Chronicle.

    Bruin Alumni Association President Andrew Jones (UCLA Class of ’03) stated, “With the Senate beginning deliberations today on the re-nominations of Justices Janice Rogers Brown and Priscilla Owen, we call on the Senate to give these most qualified of nominees a fair up-or-down vote.  We urge Senator Ted Stevens (UCLA Class of ’47) to help lead the fight for confirmation of a fellow Bruin in her time of need.”

    Brown’s brave stand in upholding Proposition 209, the measure that ended affirmative action in the state of California, earns her particular praise from the UCLA students who benefited from the equal admissions process that her crucial decision supported.

    The Bruin Alumni Association hails Justice Brown’s firm and principled stand against racial set-asides, abortion on demand, and the big-government welfare state.  Brown would proudly represent UCLA and the ideals of all right-minded alums, if confirmed to her seat on the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit.

    The Bruin Alumni Association, a non-profit 501(c)3 organization founded in 2005, serves to educate UCLA alumni and the general public about campus matters, including the radical take-over of the faculty, administration, and student body, and seeks to reverse the ongoing destruction of UCLA’s good name.
