"What a Difference a DA Makes" Presentation with Dorshei Tzedek

Join Dorshei Tzedek’s Criminal Justice Committee for a community education event about the critical role of district attorneys, how we all need to engage, and what we all need to know to ensure these elected officials provide greater transparency. Learn how DA’s can be held accountable for their decisions, and address the current racial disparities which define the criminal justice system as it is practiced today.

Rahsaan Hall, Director of our Racial Justice Program and "What a Difference a DA Makes" campaign manager, is well-versed in the issues of the DA races and will share his knowledge and expertise. Whether you are living in a contested district or not, (this year, there are five out of 11 contested races, including in Middlesex and Suffolk Counties), learning about this issue is important for all Massachusetts residents, as DAs help determine whether our legal system is fair, compassionate, and effective – or biased, punitive, and destructive.
