Arizona Judicial Branch

Commission on Minorities

The Commission on Minorities in the Judiciary (COM), a standing committee of the Arizona Judicial Council (AJC), seeks to address disproportionate minority contact in the justice system; enrich the diversity of the judiciary to reflect the communities it serves, while maintaining the highest level of qualifications; promote cultural competency in its judicial officers and employees; and enhance communication with minority communities through education and collaboration with public and private sector programs that aspire to similar purposes.

The work of COM is given direction by the Strategic Agenda for Arizona Courts and Arizona Code of Judicial Administration (ACJA) § 1-107: Commission on Minorities.
