The District Attorney (“DA”) is one of the most powerful positions in the criminal justice system. This year, seven candidates are running to be the Brooklyn DA. This forum takes place five days before the election and will allow you to hear from the candidates directly on some of the most pressing issues of our time.
Join Center for Law and Social Justice at Medgar Evers College, CUNY and Brooklyn NAACP for a conversation with the candidates before you cast your vote on Election Day.
The forum will focus on five key themes.
1. Police Brutality & Accountability
2. Prosecutorial Discretion
3. Implicit Bias
4. Restorative Justice
5. Juvenile Justice
In addition to these key areas, audience members will have an opportunity to submit questions for the candidates to answer.
