Court watching is a way to hold your district attorneys (DAs) accountable for the decisions they make in the courtroom. By attending court hearings and documenting what happens, you will gain a better understanding of how the decisions DAs make every day impact members of our communities. It also helps us push for changes in the policies and practices that lead to major racial disparities, excessive punishments, and over-incarceration.
Attend this training to learn the basics of court watching, including how the Massachusetts criminal courts work and what to look for while you’re in the courtroom.
These trainings are free and open to the public. All are welcome.
