New York Community Dispute Resolution Centers are seeking your support for the restoration of funding to the state's mediation programs. The Mediation Postcard Campaign is a creative, targeted undertaking which will send up to 5,000 actual postcards to the offices of Justice Jonathan Lippman, Chief Judge of the State of New York, for each digital supporter submitting the campaign's online form.
The postcard -- itself a strong advocacy piece -- outlines how community dispute resolution centers impact the local judiciary, including substantial per-case cost savings. It clearly articulates why the restoration of deep financial cuts to these programs is a judicious, necessary step to ensuring continued access to justice for New Yorkers in each of the state's 62 counties.
We encourage you to read this compelling press release from the campaign's coordinating CDRC and post your own support on the campaign's website today.
