Judge The Judges: Candidates Forum

graphic - Judge The Judges: Candidates Forum april 8, 6:30 pm
Monday, April 8, 2019 - 6:00pm

Join Reclaim Philadelphia and our coalition partners on April 8th at the Friends Center for a judicial candidates forum! From the platform of the Judge Accountability Table (JAT): “Judges have much discretionary power in our courts and are the ultimate decision-makers when it comes to a person’s fate in our criminal justice system.” This year, there will be 7 vacancies in the Philadelphia Courts up for election, and as people with a stake in electing candidates that believe in real justice, safety, and dignity, we deserve to have a voice in who sits on the bench.

At this forum we’ll hear from prospective candidates about why they’re running, and their views on our justice and legal system.

Door Open  at 5:30pm
