BUILDING BLOCKS FOR JUSTICE
The Building Blocks for Justice campaign is an effort to help educate the public in regards to the current state of the Miami Dade County courthouse and to demonstrate the need for the bond referendum to pass on November 4th.
Participating in this program would present an opportunity for you to meet some of the County Court justices, who are very interested in engaging with local law students, and other professionals involved in the County Court. The campaign involves those interested in public administration, environmental issues, grassroots efforts, public health, public safety, justice/judicial matters, and other areas of concern.
