Unlocking the Judiciary System with Monica F. Wiley

At the time of this episode dropping, being a woman of color has me at strife with our current judicial system. Between the overturning of Roe v. Wade and the killing of another unarmed brother by a police department, the news can feel unbearable. Our Country needs change. The best way to enact that change is to be a part of the system. That is why in this episode, I am proud to speak to Judge Monica F. Wiley, the second African American female appointed to the San Francisco Superior Court bench about how she unlocked the club to the justice system.

Judge Wiley has been a San Francisco Superior Court judge since 2009.  She was appointed by Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger.  During her tenure she has presided in civil, criminal and family law departments in both trial and calendar courtrooms.  Judge Wiley has also served as a member of the Court’s Executive Committee, the Alternative Dispute Resolution Committee, the Civil Grand Jury Committee, the Personnel Committee and the Events/Collegiality Committee.  She currently presides over a family law calendar department.  Judge Wiley also serves on the California Center for Judicial Education and Research (CJER) as classroom faculty for newly appointed judges in the State of California.
