Rediscovering Mendez v. Westminster School District
We're all aware of Brown v. Board of Education, the unanimous 1954 Supreme Court decision that legally anyhow sent Jim Crow in separate but equal to the historical dystopian. But years earlier, in 1947, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit issued an opinion that helped blaze the trail to Brown. In Mendez v. Westminster, the court shielded children of Mexican ancestry from public school segregation in California. On April 14th, the 74th anniversary of a decision and the 20th anniversary of a documentary that lifted the Mendez case from the footnotes to the text of history, the Latino Judges Association is sponsoring a Continuing Legal Education program. That program is co-sponsored by Latino Justice PRLDEF, the Franklin H. Williams Judicial Commission, CUNY Law School Center for Latinx Rights and Equality, the Historical Society of the New York State Courts and the New York State Judicial Institute. The Judicial Institute is also providing technical support.
