COURTS MATTER FLORIDA COALITION
The Courts Matter Florida Coalition is a program in which NCJW Miami and sections around the state have joined forces to inform, educate and motivate our community to be aware of the role the Judiciary plays in our everyday lives.
The National Council of Jewish Women has already worked to form Courts Matter Coalitions 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.
The Courts Matter Florida Coalition brings together organizations whose missions are affected by the judgements made in the court system – which means every organization. We 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.
