WV Access to Justice Commission holds public forums throughout state

The US and WV Constitutions promote "justice for all." But we know that it is easier for some West Virginians to get justice than others. The WV Supreme Court created the Access to Justice Commission to identify and take down barriers to justice in our state, to make good on the promise of justice for all, not just those with money, power, and influence.

The Commission is hosting a series of public forums in 6 cities across the state to solicit input from the public.

What barriers exist for older people and people with disabilities in our state justice system? What barriers exist for minorities? For LGBT individuals?

Please come one, come all, and take this opportunity to talk to the Commission about what you know about barriers to justice in WV. The first public forum is in Beckley at Tamarack on Tuesday evening 8/16 from 6p to 7:30p. Other forums will be held:

- Aug. 29, Martinsburg
- Sept. 12, Huntington
- Sept. 26, Wheeling
- Nov. 1, Morgantown
- Nov. 15, Charleston
