Commissioner Danielle Cohen Higgins announces the Street Naming Ceremony to honor Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson on March 6, 2023, at 10 a.m.

MIAMI-DADE – Miami-Dade County Commissioner Danielle Cohen Higgins announces the Street Naming Ceremony for Associate Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson, Supreme Court of the United States.

In October 2022, the Board of County Commissioners unanimously approved Commissioners Cohen Higgins’ legislation co-designating a major arterial road in south Miami-Dade County as “Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson Street.” Justice Jackson’s confirmation to the Supreme Court was a historic moment for our nation, our county, and South Dade.

Justice Jackson is not only the first black woman to sit on the Supreme Court, she is also the first Supreme Court Justice from Miami-Dade County. Justice Jackson was raised in South Dade where both her parents still reside. This street naming allows Miami-Dade County and South Dade to recognize and honor the incredible accomplishments of Justice Jackson. “As a mother, lawyer, public servant and woman of color, the Justice is an inspiration, to say the very least. It is my absolute honor to recognize the Justice and to do so during Women’s History month,” said Commissioner Cohen Higgins.

Today, I am proud to announce that Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson has accepted my invitation to honor her with a Street Naming Ceremony.

If you wish to attend the ceremony, please RSVP to [email protected] by March 3, 2023. Commissioner Danielle Cohen Higgins will serve as the emcee for the ceremony.
