FAWL IS TAKING THE LEAD WITH INFORMED VOTERS PROJECT
FAWL is excited to partner with the National Association of Women Judges Informed Voters Project, a nationwide effort focused on educating voters about the importance of having fair and impartial courts. Toward that end, we established the FAWL IVP Committee, which is co-chaired by FAWL members Liz Herman of Rosenbaum Mollengarden, PLLC and Megan Hodson of Schwartz White. This year, the IVP Committee has been busy reaching out to each of our thirty-four local chapters to familiarize them with the IVP mission and secure an IVP Chair from each chapter. For more information about this project, please contact IVP Committee Co-Chairs, Liz Herman or Megan Hodson or visit ivp.nawj.org.
Voters must protect fair courts and equal justice for all by exercising an informed vote.
Today, all across the nation, the fairness and impartiality of courts is threatened by powerful special interests seeking to tip the scales of justice in their favor. The success or failure of special interest efforts to weaken the courts rests on their ability to mislead voters, particularly if voters lack sufﬁcient knowledge about how impartial courts uphold the rule of law.
