As we know, Covid-19 did not create the systematic failings and inequities of our civil justice system and social safety net. Rather, the pandemic exacerbated these deficiencies and the significant harm they cause. To address these issues, in June, I convened the Attorney General's Covid-19 Access to Justice Task Force, a partnership between the Office of the Attorney General and the Maryland Access to Justice Commission. The purpose of the Task Force is to address civil legal challenges facing Marylanders in the wake of Covid-19.
On January 11, the Task Force released recommendations on a series of 59 racial justice priorities for the 2021 Legislative Session. These address housing, economic and food security, health equity, labor protections, and adequate access to the state's legal system. These measures are intended to help poor and minority families who have suffered the worst of the hardships brought by the coronavirus. Full report here
Principal among them are:
I'm hopeful that we have created a roadmap to help Maryland recover from this crisis and to put the state in a stronger position to weather the future.
In these troubling times, I hope you and your family are able to stay safe.
