Today the legal field lost a great champion and Committee for Hispanic Children and Families (CHCF) wonderful friend and partner in the fight for the rights of our children and their families.
Judge Kaye broke barriers as the first woman to serve on the Court of Appeals and later as Chief Judge. While Judge Kaye’s distinguished legal career is well known, we were privileged to see her passion, dedication and tenacity as a member of the New York State Permanent Judicial Commission on Justice for Children.
Her expectation that we keep pushing to protect our most vulnerable New Yorkers was evident in the way she led the Commission and held us all responsible for fighting the good fight.
The CHCF family extends its deepest condolences to her family and friends.
