Working to identify and to eradicate the effects of racial, ethnic, and cultural bias in our state court system
The Washington State Minority and Justice Commission was created by the Washington State Supreme Court in 1990 as successor to the Washington State Minority and Justice Task Force created by the court in 1987, at the request of the Washington State Legislature. By order of the Supreme Court on September 10, 2010, the Commission was renewed for an additional period of five years until December 31, 2015. In creating the Commission and subsequent Orders of Renewal, the Supreme Court acknowledges there is a continuing need to identify and to eradicate the effects of racial, ethnic, and cultural bias in our state court system.
