Advisory Committees have recently examined water affordability, school discipline disparities, policing practices, mental health and the criminal justice system, legal financial obligations, fair housing, hate crimes, voting rights, maternal health and solitary confinement.  In addition to advising the Commission, Advisory Committee reports have contributed to policy changes at the national, state and local levels.
