Cheri Beasley: Fair and timely access to justice for everyday North Carolinians
Cheri Beasley is the 29th Chief Justice of the North Carolina Supreme Court – and the first African-American woman to serve as Chief Justice of the state’s highest Court. As Chief Justice, she’s responsible for making sure every North Carolina court has the tools they need to run smoothly. She also leads the entire judicial branch of government – more than 6,500 elected officials and employees in 102 courthouses. With 20 years of experience on the bench, Cheri Beasley believes all North Carolinians should have access to swift and fair justice, no matter who they are or where they live. That’s why she’ll continue working to make our court system more transparent, fair and accessible for every North Carolinian.Learn More
