Television Ads Address Critical Judicial and Crime-Related Issues
ALEXANDRIA, VA – The Center for Individual Freedom (CFIF) today launched a public education effort in Alabama designed to educate the public about important judicial and crime-related issues in the state.
Among other things, the public education effort includes a television ad that discusses the important role the judicial branch and the rule of law play in keeping Alabama families safe. The ad urges the citizens of Alabama to log on and sign CFIF’s online petition urging Judge Greg Shaw, who’s upheld the death penalty for some of Alabama’s most heinous criminals, to continue protecting Alabama families. The ad can be viewed below.
“Our public education effort in Alabama builds on CFIF’s ongoing efforts to educate the public about important judicial and crime-related issues, and the legal decisions that steer public policy in those areas,” said CFIF President Jeffrey Mazzella. “In addition to educating the public, our television ad encourages the citizens of Alabama to ask officials with an established history of following sound jurisprudence and policies to continue protecting Alabama families.”
CFIF is a constitutional advocacy organization with more than 250,000 supporters and activists nationwide. Since 1998, the organization has been active with its efforts to educate the public on a wide range of judicial and crime-related issues at the federal, state and local levels.
“The issues addressed in this public education effort are integral to our mission as an organization that actively seeks to focus public, legislative and judicial attention on the rule of law as embodied in the federal and state constitutions,” continued Mazzella. “With this effort, it is our hope that the citizens of Alabama will become better informed on and build a greater appreciation for the necessary and important role of the state judiciary,” Mazzella concluded.
