In her recent article for the America Bar Association Journal, ABA President Hilarie Bass references National Association of Women Judges’ Informed Voters, Fair Judges Project and its co-chairs California Supreme Court Chief Justice Tani Cantil-Sakauye and Pompano Beach attorney Linda Leali.
“The National Association of Women Judges, a nationwide nonpartisan organization of judges, operates the Informed Voters, Fair Judges Project. Launched in 2012 as a civic education initiative, it works to make people aware of the role of the judiciary and the danger of political attacks.
The Informed Voters Project, co-chaired by Pompano Beach lawyer Linda Leali and California Supreme Court Chief Justice Tani Cantil-Sakauye, uses a broad array of educational resources to increase public awareness about the judicial system to inform voters that politics and special-interest attacks have no place in the courts, and to give voters the tools they need to ensure judges are appointed and elected based on their character, integrity and ability.”
