Confirm Lisa Cook and Biden's other Fed nominees NOW!!

395 so far! Help us get to 500 signers!

I urge you to vote YES on Lisa Cook's nomination along with the rest of Biden's nominees – Philip Jefferson and Lael Brainard – to serve on the Federal Reserve Board. Lisa Cook is extremely qualified and brings much-needed expertise to the Fed. It’s why The Washington Post, the NAACP Legal Defense Fund, and dozens of academic leaders have all supported her nomination. Ms. Cook would be the first Black woman to serve as a Fed governor in the central bank’s 108-year history. She has spent years studying developing economies, many of which struggled with high inflation. She is a director of the Chicago Fed and has been a regular contributor in recent years to the prestigious Jackson Hole gathering of central bankers and top economic thinkers. She is a professor at Michigan State University. The Federal Reserve Board will benefit from her many decades of experience and the Senate needs to confirm her now. Our financial system will be better off with Lisa Cook and these nominees on the Federal Reserve Board. Please support all three of their nominations to secure a fully functioning Fed. Thank you for your time.
