Task Force for Racial Equity in Criminal Justice (TREC)

 

About

Established by Governor Roy Cooper in June 2020, Attorney General Josh Stein and NC Supreme Court Associate Justice Anita Earls are leading the Task Force for Racial Equity in Criminal Justice (TREC), which consists of twenty-four members from a wide range of backgrounds.

The Task Force’s work will focus on addressing existing policies and procedures that disproportionately affect communities of color and developing solutions to ensure racial equity in North Carolina’s criminal justice system.

The Task Force submitted its recommendations on December 14, 2020. Read the final report here, the executive summary here, and the recommendations chart here.

For more information, please click here.

TREC Public Feedback Form

Transparent Meetings

The Task Force is committed to transparency and hearing your feedback on the important issues that will be discussed in the coming months. All Task Force meetings will be available for the public to view, and additional materials presented in meetings will be available on this webpage. A schedule of meetings, both full and individual working groups, is in the table below.

During this implementation phase, TREC will be tracking its work using a dynamic Excel document. TREC will post the tracker weekly here.
