Chief Justice Tani Cantil-Sakauye participated in a panel discussion called, "Undermining the Courts and Media: The Consequences of American Democracy" at the National Judicial College Judges and Journalists Symposium.
When Chief Justice Tani Cantil-Sakauye started her Civic Learning Initiative in 2013, she discovered that little time was devoted to teaching civics in California K-12 public schools, with no plans to bring it back.
"The judicial branch budget presented by the Legislature and signed by the Governor represents a tremendous investment in providing equal access to justice for all Californians," the Chief Justice said.
“The Governor’s wise budget proposal is very welcome news for our court system. His budget would restore and provide more in-person and online services for court users, increase language access, and invest in our infrastructure. The proposed budget will improve access to justice for all Californians."
