The Washington State Supreme Court Gender and Justice Commission releases the results of its extensive study of gender, race, and other disparities in Washington State’s court and carceral systems. The report covers topics ranging from youth to adults, from civil to criminal, and from one’s ability to access the courts to one’s legal, financial, family, and health impacts of conviction and incarceration at the end of a case. The report also provides recommendations on how to address the problems identified.
For additional information, please see the attached press release and Fact Sheet, and access the 2021 Gender Justice Study Final Report, Executive Summary, and five pilot project reports on the Gender and Justice Commission webpage.
We invite you to share this report widely. Please email email@example.com with ideas for how we can increase the reach of this important new research, for speaking engagements, and to partner with us to accomplish the report’s recommendations.
Thank you for your support,
Justice Sheryl Gordon McCloud and Dr. Dana Raigrodski, Co-Chairs
