America’s courts are critical to the preservation of religious liberty—and one of the greatest legacies for our first freedom has been the appointment of conservative, originalist judges to fill judicial vacancies nationwide.
Thanks to a presidential administration who’s made judicial nominations a top priority and the incredible efforts of the U.S. Senate to confirm nominees at a record pace, today we have hundreds of excellent judges seated across the federal bench.

Even with unprecedented progress taking place in judicial confirmations, there’s still much work to be done to fill the remaining federal vacancies with strong judges.
