Every year, the Diversity Committee of the Santa Clara County Bar Association honors an individual or an organization that promotes diversity in the legal profession or provides outstanding service to minority populations. The Diversity Committee is pleased to present the Unsung Heroes Award to the Juvenile Division of the Superior Court of California, Santa Clara County; the Santa Clara County Probation Department; Office of the District Attorney, Santa Clara County; and Santa Clara County Office of the Public Defender.  

This year, these four organizations are honored for their ongoing collaborative work to address racial disparities within the Justice System.  In the past decade, these four organizations have worked tirelessly to address Disproportionate Minority Contact (“DMC”) and confinement, the disparity between the youth of color that are in the population and those that are arrested and held in confinement. A review of the youth population and arrests in Santa Clara County clearly indicate overrepresentation for Latino and Black youth. While Latino youth represent 36 percent of the overall youth population, they represent 67 percent of the youth arrested. Black youth represent three percent of the overall youth population, but nine percent of arrested youth. While the DMC work is ongoing, the leadership and tremendous work done by these organizations over the past decade must be acknowledged, given the significant progress that has been achieved.
