The Justice Advisory Council
“To fight for our community’s values inside this courthouse,
I need to be sure I’m always aware of what’s going on in the community.”
- Commonwealth’s Attorney Steve Descano
It’s important to better understand our community and how our justice system interacts with it daily. Therefore, Commonwealth’s Attorney Descano has formed the Justice Advisory Council. The purpose of this council is to hear from local voices, discuss the potential for better processes, exchange data, group think policy ideas, and help lead the fight for tangible justice reform. This group will be made up of community representatives from throughout Fairfax County: heads of nonprofits, advocates, activists, faith leaders, business owners, and everyday community members will be meeting with this office regularly.
