From USF School of Law:
“From the pages of law reviews to the evening news, the role of the prosecutor has become a divisive issue. What is a prosecutor’s obligation to justice? Should it include mitigating, or even addressing, racial and socioeconomic inequity?
How should this obligation be balanced against community expectations of safety and retribution? In our polarized political climate, it is all the more important that we have a robust debate in which all viewpoints are represented and considered.
Join us for a lively discussion featuring a diverse spectrum of district attorneys ranging from traditional, progressive, and everything in between.”
