What a Difference a D.A. Makes 2017-12-13T19:36:54+00:00

District Attorneys are the most powerful people in the criminal justice system. They decide who gets charged with a crime – and determine how most criminal cases are resolved. This means these elected officials have tremendous impact on people’s lives and our communities.

It’s time to use our voices – and our vote – to make our criminal legal system fairer for everyone. Holding your DA accountable starts with getting to know them.

That’s why we’re launching the ‘What a Difference a DA Makes’ campaign and our report card to grade the effectiveness and fairness of the eleven elected District Attorneys and their offices.
