YES Institute was center stage at the Judicial College in Naples, where we led a dialogue with Florida judges on name and gender marker changes. Our courageous youth speaker opened people’s hearts, illuminating the impact of these legal decisions on youth safety and well-being.
“I haven’t stepped up to this conversation because I don’t want to be portrayed as an activist judge. I see now, I am being an activist judge by denying these rights.”
“The difference was hearing directly from a person about their struggles, not just reading about it.”
“We are coming out of this conversation with concrete actions to expand understanding and increase capacity of judges, lawyers, and litigants. Fantastic!”
