DFA Celebrates Alvin Bragg’s big win in Manhattan DA primary
DEMOCRACY FOR AMERICA CPO CHRIS SCOTT ON
ALVIN BRAGG’S PRIMARY ELECTION VICTORY FOR MANHATTAN DISTRICT ATTORNEY
“Alvin Bragg ran his primary campaign for Manhattan District Attorney with a simple motto – justice can’t wait. The voters of New York came together in resounding agreement and took a step towards justice for all New Yorkers by nominating Bragg for DA. His vision of reversing mass incarceration by reimagining public safety was clearly receptive to what voters want.”
“From taking the NYPD out of responding to mental health calls, to improving the access to parole for people who are incarcerated for long periods, and declining to prosecute some categories of low-level arrests such as stand-alone charges of resisting arrest, Alvin has distinguished himself as a real change agent and progressive champion.“
Tonight’s historic win not only brings Alvin one step closer to becoming Manhattan’s first ever Black DA, it is also a massive triumph for criminal justice reform and a better, more just New York City.”
