"No matter what issues concern you most, the courts play a vital role in determining how these issues get resolved. Whether you care about access to health care and reproductive rights or voting rights or gun safety, you should care about our courts. We all have a part to play in ensuring we have judges who will protect the rights of every American, and every Floridian, not just the wealthy and well connected," declares Damien Filer.
The doors open at 11 am, and lunch is served at 11:30. The cost to attend this thought provoking event is $25 before February 13, and $35 afterwards. RSVPs are requested either online at www.lwvpbc.org or by calling Esther Friedman at 561-968-4123.

"Mass incarceration, particularly of poor people and people of color, is the humanitarian crisis of our time. It has devastated our families and communities. Addressing the effects of this must take many forms: reducing incarceration rates, providing reentry services to recently released incarcerated people, and supporting families who have been torn apart," says Carey Haughwout.
This is a free event. THE STEM is located across from the South Florida Science Center and Aquarium. RSVPs online at www.lwvpbc.org.
