WASHINGTON -

Wade Henderson, interim president and CEO of The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, released the following statement applauding President Biden’s latest slate of 10 federal judicial nominations, including the nomination of Dale Ho to the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York:

“Our courts are in critical need of diverse judges who possess a breadth of experience protecting civil rights and defending the rights of all people.
