WOW Dems General Meeting – Thursday, August 13

“Here Comes the Judge” – Why we Need Progressive Judges in the Texas Judiciary

3 prominent judges will participate on a panel: Judge Dennise Garcia, 303rd Family District Court, Judge Gena Slaughter, 191st Judicial District Court, and (WOW member) Judge Elizabeth Frizell, Criminal District Court 7. These judges represent a broad cross-section of the judicial system covering family, civic, and criminal courts. (We think Judges Garcia and Slaughter plan to run for the 5th District Court of Appeals, a 6-County area including Collin and Dallas.) Each judge will speak about their background and judicial area, and then the panel will take questions from the audience.

Some questions that may be of interest to our group:

  • Why are judges important to us and our issues (i.e. environment, women’s rights, education, gun carry, income disparity, minimum wage, voter rights, union rights, etc.)?
  • How can we help elect progressive judges?
  • Why is it so important to have progressive women as District and Appellate Judges?
  • How does the Appellate system work – State and Federal levels?
  • How are Grand Juries selected and handled?
  • How does the judicial branch impact legislation?
