On March 3rd, you have a decision to make about your Los Angeles District Attorney. Visit the DA Justice Coalition site for more information on the upcoming election.
District Attorneys (DAs) have tremendous power to impact the lives of millions of people, their families, and entire communities. If someone is accused of a crime, it is the DA–not the police–who has the sole power to decide if criminal charges are filed and the severity of those charges. They alone decide who is deserving of a jail or prison sentence and who will instead be routed into a diversion program to help rebuild their life, or have charges dismissed.
In California, we have 58 elected DAs each representing one of our 58 counties. Our job is to elect a DA who is committed to seeking justice in criminal cases, working to prevent crime, and serving as a leader in the diverse communities they represent.
