The People's Coalition for Manhattan DA Accountability
Defund and defang manhattan's district attorney
The People’s Coalition for Manhattan DA Accountability was created by a coalition of advocacy organizations, grassroots-led networks, and legal aid providers that have come together to ensure that the issues central to our members and constituents are centered in the 2021 Manhattan District Attorney race.
Our organizations are oriented toward defunding and defanging the Manhattan District Attorney, now and in the future. We aim to ensure that the people most vulnerable to prosecution — Black and Brown communities with low income — are central to shaping the dominant narratives about the race, determining the eventual outcome, and holding the victor accountable to campaign promises and community-led demands.
It is our hope that with this platform, we can highlight distinctions between and among the DA candidates to ensure that all of Manhattan is represented.
