Conversation with DA Larry Krasner

November 14 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Philadelphia’s District Attorney, Larry Krasner, has been recognized for reinventing the role of prosecutor into a leading champion of criminal justice reform in the United States. Throughout his 30 year career, Mr. Krasner has also proudly demonstrated a steadfast commitment to social justice, having defended protesters pro bono who were involved with movements including ACT UP, Black Lives Matter, progressive clergy with POWER, Casino-Free Philadelphia, DACA Dreamers, among many others. Importantly, he advocates for a public health approach to substance use and challenges, which have typically, and harmfully, been addressed though punitive approaches.
