States and cities across the United States recognize Court Reporting & Captioning Week

As of today, fourteen states and two major metropolitan cities have issued proclamations declaring Feb. 5-12, 2022 as Court Reporting & Captioning Week. In addition, U.S. Rep. Rodney Davis of Illinois, entered a statement to the Congressional Record on Feb. 8 remarking, “Throughout our nation’s 250 years of existence, court reporters have been the cornerstone of our American justice system.”

The bipartisan group of governors and mayors who issued these proclamations recognized the guardians of the record for their service to capturing our collective history, ensuring expanded access for the blind and hard of hearing, as well as for the various opportunities the careers in court reporting and captioning present.

In Houston, Texas, the Honorable Latosha Lewis Payne read the city’s proclamation while surrounded by fellow judges and court reporters.

Proclamations will be added as we receive them. Spread the love of steno by visiting the NCRA resource center for CRCW2022 to learn more about how to promote the incredible careers of court reporting and captioning.
