manhattan da candidate forum tonight
This Friday, Nov 3rd at 6:30pm, Katal is co-sponsoring a Comunity Forum for Candidates for Manhattan District Attorney. We’re working with co-sponsors 5 Boro Defenders, Discovery for Justice, Sylvia Rivera Law Project, and other community groups on the Forum, which will be moderated by Soffiyah Elijah, executive director of Alliance of Families for Justice. There are two write in candidates who have confirmed attendance — Marc Fliedner and Peter Gleason — and the incumbent District Attorney, Cy Vance, has been invited.
Prosecutors are a driving force behind mass incarceration, and voters deserve to know where each candidate stands on the issues. Join us tonight for this important discussion. Visit this page to RSVP for the event, and check out the Facebook event here.
