Save the Date - November 14, Racial Impact Statements in Washington
The Washington State Supreme Court's Minority and Justice Commission jointly with the Washington State Sentencing Guidelines Commission would like to invite the community to participate and weigh in on the topic of racial impact statements for Washington State. Racial impact statements are a tool that can provide a constructive means for policy makers to proactively assess how proposed sentencing laws may affect racial and ethnic disparities in the justice system.
The event will be held on Friday, November 14, from 8:45 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. at the Tukwila Community Center in Tukwila, WA. All are welcome and invited to attend.
Please send an RSVP email to Cynthia.Delostrinos@courts.wa.gov. Please indicate if you need any special accommodations.
