Florida Courts Matter Coalition is a program that NCJW Miami and NCJW Florida have joined forces to bring to Florida.
The National Council of Jewish Women has already worked to form Courts Matter Coalition in 7 other states around the country. Federal judges make decisions that impact women, children, and families.
Federal court decisions impact every aspect of our lives: The schools we can attend; our privacy; our ability to start a family when we choose; the safety of the products we buy; our religious freedom; and our voting rights. That’s why ensuring a fair and independent judiciary is essential.
NCJW has been a leading voice in the progressive community’s fight to ensure a fair and independent judiciary with an unwavering commitment to constitutional rights. Our powerful grassroots network educates their communities about the importance of the federal judiciary and mobilizes and advocates to ensure that court vacancies are filled by nominees who are committed to constitutional values.
A Florida Courts Matter Coalition would bring together organizations whose missions are affected by the judgements made in the court system – which means every organization. We will bring together a solid group to advocate for a fair judiciary bound by the constitution and to educate the public about the importance of the judiciary and how the leaders we vote for affect this third branch of government.
Join us in building this exciting coalition; we need your help to bring these groups together, produce educational materials and provide resources for our volunteers and staff to advocate.
