Supreme Court of Missouri seeks feedback from Kansas City residents

The Supreme Court of Missouri’s Commission on Racial and Ethnic Fairness will host its next public feedback session Sept. 16 in Kansas City to gain the public’s input into Missouri’s juvenile justice system.

All community members are invited to attend this session, which will focus on:

  • Listening to ideas, experiences or recommendations from the public; and
  • Examining strategies from community members about the juvenile justice system and ways Missouri courts can best meet the needs of our youth.

The commission also will share its progress in addressing currently identified issues and the ongoing process for future changes.

The session will take place from 9 to 11 a.m., Saturday, Sept. 16, 2017, at Paseo Academy, 4747 Flora Avenue, Kansas City, Missouri 64110.

The commission was established in 2015 under the direction of then-Chief Justice Patricia Breckenridge. It focuses its study on six areas—the judicial system generally, the civil justice system, the criminal justice system, the juvenile justice system, the municipal justice system and the practice of law—to identify solutions and make recommendations for improvement.

A future event is planned for Cape Girardeau.
