11 a.m. – 1 p.m. (HST)

This virtual roundtable is the culminating event in a public programming series created by the Hawaii State Judiciary that began in January 2021. Great insight has been shared by community stakeholders on topics ranging from the Black Lives Matter movement; data and the criminal justice system; civil rights and access to justice; implicit bias; and diversity, inclusion, and empowerment. This concluding discussion will provide a platform for representatives in the justice system, government agencies, and community organizations to share their priorities, lessons learned, and identified challenges as we, as a community, work towards a more equitable Hawaii.
