Pushing for Greater Diversity in the Judiciary

The Urban Alliance on Race Relations fully supports the concerted efforts of racialized lawyers, organizations, and members of the legal profession who have asked Canada’s Justice Minister Peter MacKay to address the lack of diversity of Canada’s judiciary.

Its time that the issue of diversity of leadership and representativeness our communities in the judiciary become an issue of public importance.
