THE PEOPLE’S CHOICE AWARD
CHAMPIONS FOR CHILDREN’S JUSTICE
The Center for Judicial Excellence has worked for 13 years to shine a light on the judicial child trafficking epidemic in the United States. This year, we’re hosting two events at the beach in Santa Monica, a daylong conference on Friday, September 20th and a semi-formal awards reception on Saturday, September 21st. For information about the weekend, click here.
This year, we plan to honor a few exceptional journalists whose work has exposed this horrifying epidemic in the family court system that is harming countless children around the world each year.
We’ve opened up our Local Television Category to let our supporters decide whose investigative reporting was most impactful to our social justice movement to protect children in family courts.
Help us select the winner of The 2019 People’s Choice Award. Below you’ll find the names of the reporters and links to their relevant stories. Then, please select your favorite from the survey below before the July 26th deadline!
Winners will be announced on Wednesday, July 31st. If you’re interested in attending the Awards Reception, which is a fundraiser to support our year-round work, click here to learn more and register!
