Community Forum on the Justice System and District Attorney

Date(s) - 03/21/2018
6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Skyline Hills Library

District attorneys (DAs) are more than just prosecutors. If someone is accused of committing a crime, it is not the police but the DA who has the power to decide whether to file criminal charges and how severe those charges are.

A DA decides who goes straight to prison and who instead gets a second chance to rebuild their lives. Despite their power, most of us know little about our DAs and the impact they have on our lives and communities.

As an elected official and our region’s top law enforcement officer, DAs are powerful, accountable to voters and charged with serving all the people and communities they represent.

Hear from a panel of local and national experts in criminal justice. Learn more about the office of the DA, their role in shaping our criminal justice system and the ways our DAs can work to achieve justice for all communities.

Seats are limited. You can reserve your seat by RSVP from the link above, or go directly to our Eventbrite page via this link
