In June 2010, the Minnesota Judicial Council authorized formation of the Committee for Equality and Justice (CEJ).

 
To accomplish this mission, the Committee is charged with:

  1. Recommending diversity and inclusion education programs and course materials for judges and Judicial Branch employees;
  2. Promoting diversity and inclusion in the Judicial Branch employment and in appointments to Judicial Branch committees and boards to reflect the population served by the Judicial Branch;
  3. Making recommendations for improvement in court processes, procedures and policies  as they relate to race, gender, ethnicity, age, disability, socioeconomic status, religion, sexual orientation, and any other status protected by law; and
  4. Assisting district Equal Justice Committees in their work at the local level, and providing assistance in outreach efforts to the communities they serve.
Assisting district Equal Justice Committees in their work at the local level, and providing assistance in outreach efforts to the communities they serve.Membership for the Committee for Equality and Justice is reflective of the state’s geographic and demographic diversity. It is comprised of 27 individuals who are justice system partners, attorneys, court employees, judges and members of the public.

Site Information
Beam
  • For the commercial sector, we tend to register startup activities (new companies and new commercial projects) that bring diversification and high-impact opportunities to the area.
  • For the non-profit sector, we wish to shine light on all the organizations and services that otherwise labor under relative obscurity.
  • Our hope is that Cbeam will encourage cross-sector collaborations and creative solutions.

While there are a number of registries in the community, Cbeam's distinct value is to pilot a database with a data structure and categorizations that answer the questions such as: What organizations or projects/programs in our community that have purported relevancies with some of the over-arching focuses put forward by initiatives such as DMC, J2G and Health Improvements.

This database could be used as one of the ways to explore the capacities of the community. If you are someone on an exploratory journey to learn about the greater Rochester community. Cbeam could be an interesting first step.
