On Thursday, June 12, 2014, Statewide Guardian ad Litem Program Executive Director Alan Abramowitz shared a brief video of Judge Cindy S. Lederman with staff and volunteers.
Judge Lederman, of the Eleventh Judicial Circuit in Miami-Dade County, was named National CASA Judge of the Year and provided recorded acceptance remarks whilst being abroad.
You can read Abramowitz's message and watch Judge Lederman's video below.
I am sharing with you a video of Judge Cindy Lederman. She gave a short speech discussing the Guardian ad Litem Program, volunteer and staff and how important they are in saving the lives of children who have been abused. She made these comments in response to being selected as the National CASA Judge of the Year.
She clearly has been one of our champions from the bench and truly understands the difference each of you make. At the National CASA Conference in Texas this video was shown to more than 1,200 child advocates. After you watch it you will see why there was not a dry eye in the auditorium.
