Prosecutors, Power, and Racial Injustice: Building an Anti-Racist Prosecutorial System - Part 2
Wednesday, March 10, 2021 | 4:00 PM - 6:00 PM
This program will explore the role prosecutors and prosecutor offices have played in creating and perpetuating structural inequities in the criminal legal system, ethical obligations of prosecutors, and strategies for implementing anti-racist prosecutorial practices.
This is part 2 of a four-part series that will explore the role of gang prosecution in perpetuating structural inequities in the criminal legal system, the use of ethical rules to regulate prosecutors, and the ways in which racial bias distorts prosecutorial decision-making in juvenile court and in the transfer of adolescents to be tried as adults in a criminal court.
