This is a virtual event
Join the Judge Accountability Table (JAT) for the two day virtual Judge the Judges: Judicial Candidates Forum on March 30th and 31st from 6PM to 8PM. Judges have a lot of discretionary power in our courts and are the ultimate decision-makers on a person's fate in the criminal law system. This year, there are 8 vacancies in the Court of Common Pleas and 3 in the Municipal Court up for election. As people with a stake in electing candidates that believe in real justice, safety, and dignity, we deserve to have a say in who sits on the bench.
Attend the virtual forum to hear from the 2021 judicial candidates to help you determine who you will vote for this Spring, and learn about how our local judicial branch impacts everyday Philadelphians and local politics.
