The criminal justice system has been broken for a long time, especially for poor people and communities of color. The recent murders of unarmed black men and women have created a national conversation on the system as a whole, but we fear one of the most important agents in the system is being overlooked: County Prosecutors/District Attorneys.
To help us all move together to solidify real fixes to the current system, WeROC and MOSES are organizing a four-county virtual Townhall event on Prosecutorial Accountability and Voter Education on July 30th at 6pm. We’ll learn more about the critical role of Prosecutor and use our strength in numbers to get commitments from the candidates who want our votes in the August 4 Primary Election – from Wayne, Washtenaw, Oakland, and Macomb counties – so we can hold the winners accountable as they take office. Please register now, and encourage others in your congregation, union, organization, or network to do so as well.
Register for our July 30th Justice Matters Virtual Townhall here:
