New Orleans has led the world in mass incarceration, but now we can lead the world in justice reformation.
This November, the people of New Orleans have an opportunity to create a new vision for the Orleans Parish District Attorney’s Office. We demand a reform Prosecutor who embraces fairer, safer, more effective approaches to criminal justice.
A Roadmap to Reform
Our mission is to create a District Attorney’s office that is ethical, compassionate and accountable to all of its constituents; a DA’s office that is committed to ending the era of mass incarceration that has so long plagued the New Orleans community.
The people of New Orleans deserve a district attorney that will champion criminal justice reform and work to serve the community as whole. As a coalition, we are united on the following policy platform, and we will hold the next DA accountable to its demands. Read the platform below.
"Let's make our communities safer and ensure our criminal justice system will be fair rather than unjust, effective rather than chaotic and right rather than wrong."
"Equity. Impartiality. Justice. Accountability. New Orleans deserves it, and as your DA, I'm going to bring it. Together we'll build a system that works for everyone."
"I would increase the public’s trust in the Criminal Court System by working hard every day to enhance the quality of life in our community and I would try hard to give the public their monies’ worth."
"I will replace a culture that seeks victory for prosecutors with a culture that seeks justice for victims. It is time to re-imagine and redesign a justice system that equitably serves all people."
