A group formed to study and make recommendations on issues involving race and gender fairness in Indiana's judicial system will host five community forums throughout the state.
One of the Indiana Supreme Court’s Commission on Race & Gender Fairness events will take place in Indianapolis on March 9 from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at the Madame Walker Theater Center, 617 Indiana Ave.
The public is invited to participate in small group discussions about the status of race and gender in the judicial system. The forums are designed to encourage dialogue between members of the community and the commission.
Organizers are encouraging those interested in attending a forum to register online, but advance registration is not required. All events will be accessible to people with disabilities; and individuals needing special accommodations should contact Ashley Rozier three days prior to the event.
