“When I took the oath of office, I promised to aid the Wisconsin Supreme Court in improving the administration of justice. The U.S. has a racial equality problem when it comes to justice, and how you are treated may depend on the color of your skin or what your background is. Therefore, while diversity and inclusion cuts across all aspects, race, gender, etc., the focus this year is on racial equality and justice," Brost said in a news release Friday.
