Volunteer to Keep District Attorneys Accountable
District attorneys are the mass incarceration machine’s largest cogs. They decide who deserves a jail or prison sentence, whom to route into pre-plea or pre-trial diversion program designed to help people rebuild their lives and whose charges to dismiss. And they abuse their power.
We know DAs coerce confessions. We know they fight reforms to keep juveniles out of adult court. We know they break the law in pursuit of convictions. It doesn’t have to be like this.
In Los Angeles County, we are working with a coalition of grassroots and policy organizations and people who have endured harsh DA policies to educate others about the power DAs wield and to encourage voters to elect a DA who reflects their values.
