We are a collection of lawyers, activists, and grass roots organizations that embrace a vision for criminal justice in Fulton County that rejects past practices and policies that have over-criminalized Fulton County citizens and embraces a less punitive and more compassionate approach to criminal justice. We seek a district attorney who has the courage and compassion to balance the need to keep our community safe, while ensuring that all citizens are treated with dignity by the police and the criminal justice system.
The results of the June Democratic primary election for Fulton County district attorney revealed that a significant number of Fulton County residents favored progressive criminal justice policies over the status quo. There is a growing nationwide chorus of citizens demanding that prosecutors reexamine their role in fueling mass incarceration. Regardless of which of the two remaining candidates becomes the next Fulton County district attorney, we urge both candidates to publicly commit that, if elected, they will use their discretion to adopt and implement the following policies regarding juvenile prosecutions, drug possession, cash bail, and police accountability.
