Monroe County Family Court Candidates Summit 10/3/18

Indivisible Rochester invites all area progressive groups to join us in the effort to bring much needed progressive change to Monroe County with the Monroe County Family Court Candidates Summit.

What:   A meeting of all interested progressive groups, their leaders and membership
Where: Penfield Community Center Auditorium, 1985 Baird Rd, Penfield, NY 14526
When:  Wednesday, October 3, 2018 starting at 6:30 p.m.
Who:     All regional progressive groups, their leaders and members

Join us at the Candidate Summit to:
    Learn more about the Family Courts Candidates and WHY we should support them.
    Identify and coordinate election efforts in support of Democratic Family Court Candidates Fatimat Reid and Zuleika Shepard.  

Family Court has a direct impact on families, particularly those of color from underprivileged backgrounds.
Ms. Reid and Ms. Shepard are two highly successful lawyers with deep experience in Family Court.  They also personally understand the challenges that confront many of the families that appear before Family Court.  Importantly, the Monroe County Democratic Party’s Judicial Screening Committee deemed both, Highly Qualified.  In addition to legal excellence, these candidates will bring much needed diversity to Family Court.   The Republican Candidates will continue the total lack of diversity, which has plagued Family Court for three decades.

Now is the time to put our progressive values into action. This meeting will be aimed at identifying specific tasks each of us can undertake in order to correct this terrible lack of diversity.
