Midland County Prosecuting Attorney J. Dee Brooks has been appointed by the Michigan Supreme Court to serve on the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in the Michigan Judiciary Commission. The Michigan Supreme Court established the commission earlier this year with a directive to assess and work toward the elimination of disparities within the Michigan judiciary and justice system.
The DEI Commission is made up of 26 members, representing a broad cross-section of judges, court administrators, attorneys and community members. Brooks will serve as the representative from the Prosecuting Attorneys Association of Michigan, for a term expiring on December 31, 2023. The Commission is expected to begin its formal work this fall.
Brooks said he is greatly honored by the appointment, and looks forward to working with the other members to improve the Michigan justice system.
