Connect with the community

We recognize that the court can be mysterious and black robes can be intimidating. We want to break down those barriers through our Court and Communities group.

We connect with our communities through presentations, in-person visits, and events which we host and attend. We talk to youth, civic groups, and legal organizations. 

We pick the topic or you pick the topic. Our goal is to improve the two-way conversation. We have as much to learn from you as you do from us.

Some previous topics have included: 

  • Juvenile Justice
  • Legal help for litigants with no attorney or limited English
  • Bail reform 
  • How to court works and how it is funded

To arrange for a speaker, please contact our Communications Manager, jamie.holter@kingcounty.gov by email or phone at 206.719.7535.
