Courts Matter Broken Law

    • News Commentary

For as much talk as there is about the presidency and whom we elect to Congress, there is rarely public conversation about who is sitting on our federal courts, specifically those that are not the U.S. Supreme Court. This absence of public discourse is at odds with the impact that the federal courts have on our lives. On this episode, Jeanne Hruska chats with Jill Dash, ACS Vice President for Strategic Engagement, about the federal courts, why they matter, and about how egregiously undiverse they are. The stats will shock you. They also discuss how people go about becoming federal judges and how listeners can engage in the process.
