Happy 75th Anniversary, NCJFCJ!

January 6, 2012

On May 22, 2012, the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges will celebrate its 75th Anniversary! Since forming as an organization in 1937, the Council has made great strides toward our mission of providing judges, courts, and related agencies involved with juvenile, family, and domestic violence cases with the knowledge and skills to improve the lives of the families and children who seek justice.

The first event on our timeline we’d like to share with you is the founding of the organization. On May 22, 1937, the organization was founded in Indianapolis as the first national judicial membership organization in the United States, with the premise that every family and child should have access to fair, equal, effective, and timely justice.

The original logo was based on the painting “Tomorrow” which hangs in the Cuyahoga County Juvenile Court in Cleveland, Ohio.

Visit our blog each month where we’ll reveal additional events that helped shape our organization and community. To view a timeline of our history from 1937 to today, please click here.
