‘What a difference a DA makes’ on Thursday, July 12 from 7 to 9 pm

“Who is the most powerful person in the criminal legal system? It’s your local District Attorney, the DA.”

Rahsaan Hall is the Racial Justice Director of the Massachusetts ACLU and a fabulous public speaker. He will talk about what a difference DAs make in who gets charged with what . . . whether to charge someone with a crime or divert them to treatment for an addiction . . . whether to invoke a mandatory minimum sentence . . . what to include in a plea bargain . . . and many other decisions that shape people’s lives. He will also explain how we, as voters, can hold DAs accountable.

This event is located at Temple Isaiah, 55 Lincoln Street in Lexington. It is co-sponsored by the Greater Boston Interfaith Organization (GBIO), the ACLU, and several religious groups, including First Parish’s Mass Incarceration Working Group.
