INTERBRANCH COMMISSION FOR GENDER, RACIAL AND ETHNIC FAIRNESS
Annual Public Meeting
[38 Pa.B. 4965]
[Saturday, September 6, 2008]
The Interbranch Commission (Commission) for Gender, Racial and Ethnic Fairness was established in 2005 as a means of implementing the recommendations contained in the study by the Supreme Court Committee of Pennsylvania on Racial and Gender Bias in the Justice System. Since its inception, the Commission has been actively addressing issues identified in the study, including diversifying the court workforce and juries throughout the State, establishing a loan forgiveness program for public defenders, developing systems for juvenile record expungement, and providing interpreter services in administrative hearings, among other initiatives.
The Commission is planning to present a report of its activities to the public during its next quarterly meeting on September 11, 2008. The meeting will be held at the Rachel Carson State Office Building, Auditorium located at 400 Market Street, Harrisburg, PA 17101. We would be honored to have you attend the event from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m., during which the presentation of our third Annual Report will be made. Members of the judiciary, the legislature, local and State bar associations, law school faculty and community groups, as well as the press, have been invited to attend. The Commission has also issued a special invitation to Governor Rendell and Mayor Stephen R. Reed to speak.
The Commission believes that this program will reflect very positively on the entire legal community. The Commission hopes that persons will find the time to attend, not only to learn more about what the Commission has accomplished during the past year, but also to show support for our efforts to promote fairness in our court system.
The contact is Christine Kalinik, paralegal for the Commission, at email@example.com. If persons plan to attend the meeting contact Christine Lakinik by September 8, 2008.
