Working to identify and to eradicate the effects of racial, ethnic, and cultural bias in our state court system
The purpose of the Minority and Justice Commission is to determine whether racial and ethnic bias exists in the courts of the state of Washington. To the extent that it exists, the Commission is charged with taking creative steps to overcome it. To the extent that such bias does not exist, the Commission is charged with taking creative steps to prevent it.
Annually, the Commission selects an artist and work to help further our mission of supporting and communicating the message of the value of diversity, not only within our court system, but throughout our community as a whole.
