George GascónFor Los Angeles County District Attorney
For 8 years current Los Angeles District Attorney Jackie Lacey has resisted progressive reforms while defending tough-on-crime policies.
We endorse George Gascón because he has the experience and leadership to reshape our justice system. He is the former San Francisco District Attorney and Assistant Chief of the LAPD.
Throughout his career, Gascón has been on the forefront of innovative criminal justice reform. He has successfully:
- Established a young-adult court to divert kids away from prison
- Launched California’s first public portal on prosecution data
- Expunged over 9,000 marijuana convictions
- Launched a tool allowing prosecutors to review cases without identifying details, in an effort to eliminate racial bias in charging decisions
- Co-authored legislation to reduce punishments for certain nonviolent offenses
- Advocated for policy change to reduce police killings. He was the only DA in California to publicly support updating the state’s standard on deadly force.
Los Angeles deserves a DA committed to bringing fairness and integrity back to the LA District Attorney’s Office. Gascón has proven we can achieve public safety without criminalizing Black people, and without relying on incarceration as the only form of justice.
