Elected progressive prosecutors will discuss their efforts of maintaining public safety while combatting systemic racism and ending mass incarceration; They will share their vision of reforming the criminal justice system to eliminate the overincarceration of racial minorities and poor communities with new approaches to cash bail, the elimination of charging juveniles as adults, reducing the prison population, and opposition to the death penalty among other priorities; Though voters may have elected these prosecutors to enact reform, there remains opposition from traditional sources who maintain that the “tough on crime” approach should continue to be pursued; The prosecutors counter that data, evidence and a science based approach along with collaborative partnerships with community stakeholders is the best course of action and will provide comments on how they navigate the complex and difficult process of changing the culture of criminal prosecution.
