What are legal advocates and ORGANIZERS saying?

Public interest lawyers, public defenders, and advocates fighting for working-class New Yorkers know that Madeline Singas's appointment to the Court of Appeals would be a disaster and are demanding that the New York State Senate stop Singas from taking the bench.

Help us block Cuomo's worst judicial appointee yet. Save New York from this out-of-touch, regressive prosecutor by convincing the State Senate to prevent Singas from becoming a judge on our state's highest court.
