About the Informed Voters Project
The National Association of Women Judges launched the Informed Voters Project in 2012 as a nonpartisan civic education initiative to inform citizens about the role of the judicial branch and raise awareness of political attacks that threaten fair and impartial courts. The Informed Voters Project has developed into a nationwide award winning program through the full support of its leadership: California Chief Justice Cantil-Sakauye, Miami attorney Linda Leali, Florida Supreme Court Justice Barbara Pariente and North Carolina Supreme Court Justice Robin Hudson. Through the development of educational materials and resources for public education, the Informed Voters Project provides citizens with the tools they need to make an informed vote and protect fair and impartial courts.
