We are trying to have a more diverse bench. I won't go into the detail right now unless somebody else asks me. The point of it is that people will feel more confident when they see a bench—or actors in the judicial system—that reflects them, however they conceive themselves, and they might share common experiences. It has been the case that shared experience is what's critical. That forms a bridge between the people who are formal actors in the judicial system, such as judges, and the people who appear before them. That bridge is absolutely critical to the confidence that people have in the system.
