Bribe-taking Ex-Judge Garson to be released Early
Reflects the kinds of barriers to justice survivors of Domestic Violence face in custody disputes everyday
Monday, December 7th, 2009
Across the Street from
Brooklyn Family Court
330 Jay Street
2,3,4,5,A,C,F to Borough Hall
Voices of Women Organizing Project will join other domestic violence and court reform advocates to denounce the early release of Ex-Judge Garson and call for reforms in the Family Court System. Though this particular case of corruption was investigated and convicted, thousands of survivors of domestic violence still report feeling as though the system is stacked against them. VOW members, survivors of abuse themselves, will offer recommendations to make the courts a place where survivors can receive justice.
Please attend to make this a powerful event. Wear purple to support survivors!
