Veteran Juvenile Court Judge Tackles Tough Topics with FFCR Volunteers

FFCR’s Citizen Review Panel volunteers recently had the opportunity to observe hearings conducted by national and internationally recognized juvenile Judge Cindy Lederman. After the hearings, Judge Lederman spoke with the volunteers about the challenges faced by foster youth, the court system and the importance of community engagement. She also swore in FFCR’s newest volunteers making them eligible to sit on our Citizen Review Panels. FFCR is grateful to Judge Lederman for taking the time to meet with our volunteers and share insights gained from 25 years on the bench.
