Advocates launch campaigns spotlighting the power of prosecutors.

To help the public understand the powerful role prosecutors play in the criminal justice system, a number of advocates launched campaigns or created media tools in 2017. 

Brooklyn Defender Services released a four-minute video featuring a variety of thought leaders in criminal justice. The ACLU of California launched the “Meet Your DA” website, with a video introduction by singer/songwriter John Legend; the ACLU of Massachusetts launched the “What a Difference a DA Makes” website, which includes videos and a DA report card; and the ACLU of Oregon’s “They Report to You” campaign aims to encourage voters to participate in their local elections for prosecutors.
