General Order Regarding Appointment to the Committee of Racial and Ethnic Fairness in the Rhode Island Courts

Thursday, November 16, 2023

The Committee on Racial and Ethnic Fairness in the Courts was created to enhance public confidence in the independence, integrity, and impartiality of the Rhode Island Judiciary and to promote a fair and bias-free justice system by: 1) engaging in self-examination, education, and public outreach; 2) identifying areas of systemic racism, unconscious bias, disparate impact, and socioeconomic and other inequities; and 3) taking affirmative steps to self-monitor and combat inequities, so as to ensure a system that is accessible to all and treats all persons equally.  Please see this Court's General Order appointing federal judges to serve on the Committee.
