One of our greatest leaders in the courts, and the chair of CCJ/COSCA's Family Justice Reform effort, Iowa Chief Justice Mark Cady, addressed a national audience regarding child and family cases in September 2019 saying “We need to be able to say that we did everything that we could when it was our time.” Chief Justice Cady passed away unexpectedly, just two months later. His efforts to support fairness, his dedication to children and families and his leadership within the courts will not be forgotten. In honor of Chief Justice Cady and in honor of children and families, the Cady Family Justice Reform Initiative commits to do what we can in our time.
The Cady Family Justice Reform Initiative is supported primarily by funding from the State Justice Institute as well as partnering courts.
