Conversations on Racial Justice
America’s judges confront the system’s culpability for racial injustice and mount a search for solutions
Judging the Judiciary on Race
In the wake of the George Floyd killing and subsequent protests against police brutality and racial injustice, the NJC is convening the judiciary’s first national self-examination on the issue of racial injustice.
All judges and other justice system professionals are invited to participate in this series of free webinars that will feature prominent state supreme court justices, academics, prosecutors and defense counsel, even Hollywood figures responsible for how judges are portrayed in film.
The Model Code compels you to ensure equal justice. The point of this groundbreaking series is to ask what may be uncomfortable questions in the pursuit of ways to rid the justice system of racism.
Read the resolution unanimously adopted by the Conference of Chief Justices and Conference of State Court Administrators pledging action to eradicate systemic racism and make the courts fairer to people of color.
