LGBTQ people and people of color are overrepresented in the criminal justice system. In San Francisco, over 50% of our jail population is black in a city where today the black population is less than 3%.

It's time to move beyond the rhetoric. We need real, transformational change to the criminal justice system in the United States.

As our next District Attorney, Chesa's first priority will be to improve public safety by fundamentally reforming our broken criminal justice system that is devastatingly expensive, inefficient, unjust and inhumane. It's broken because more than 2/3 of people who are arrested and prosecuted come back into the system within a few years.

As District Attorney, Chesa will:

+ END MASS INCARCERATION:. 2/3 of people are back in prison within three years of their release. Breaking the cycle of crime and incarceration is the only way to make us safe.

+GIVE VICTIMS A VOICE in every case. Justice needs to include all of us.

+ ELIMINATE CASH BAIL: It allows dangerous people with money to buy their way out while poor people languish in jail regardless of how weak the evidence is against them.

+ EQUAL ENFORCEMENT OF THE LAW: Effectively prosecute police misconduct. Investigate and prosecute political corruption, corporate crime and landlords who break laws to exploit tenants.

+ END RACIST DISPARITIES: They plague every step of our criminal justice system.

+ FOCUS RESOURCES on serious and violent felonies. Two-thirds of the cases that go to trial in San Francisco are misdemeanors – a tremendous waste of resources.
