Chief Justice Steven Gonzalez

Racial Reckoning and the State of the Judiciary

The challenges and events of 2020 have followed our judicial system into 2021. From responding to the COVID-19 pandemic to facing a national reckoning that spotlighted the racial injustice within our legal system, courts have had to change the way they accomplish their work and deliver open, fair, and equal justice to the people in Washington State. Chief Justice González will speak about the racial reckoning facing our country, and the state of the judiciary as it continues to recover from the pandemic.

Links from This Week's Meeting

Today, our opening music video was the song Across the Universe performed by AURORA and written by John Lennon. The refrain Jai Guru Deva Om is a mantra intended to lull the mind into higher consciousness.  
The $6 million "Malaria Free Zambia" project is the cover story of the Rotary magazine's May issue.  Kudos to Malaria Partners International, Federal Way Rotary, Malaria Partners Zambia, Rotary International, World Vision, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, and PATH/MACEPA.
