Family Court Info and Action: Reid and Shepard

October 3 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Please come to this meeting of progressive groups to learn more about the Family Court Candidates and WHY we should support them. We will meet in the  Penfield Community Center Auditorium.

Purposes: To 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.
