A civic education effort for communities within the Second Circuit introduced a new website to help educate the public and participants about the program. On January 25, 2017, Chief Judge Robert Katzmann and his co-chair, Southern District Judge Victor Marrero announced the launch of the Justice For All: Courts and the Community website: justiceforall.ca2.uscourts.gov
The initiative, organized by a circuit-wide Committee on Civic Education, includes programs for courthouse visits, civic ceremonies and student contests. There are re-enactments of famous, groundbreaking cases and educational materials and other efforts designed, Katzmann said, “to help increase points of contact between the courts and the communities we serve,” and to foster mutual understanding.
The website contains a list of programs and a calendar of upcoming events, and gives visitors the chance to contact the committee with various topics or questions.
