Event #3: Q&A with District Attorney Candidates George Gascon and Rachel Rossi
And finally, our evening with D.A. candidates George Gascon and Rachel Rossi! It was an inspiring and uplifting evening, filled with nuanced and thoughtful answers by both candidates about how science can inform their decision-making.
The questions – all surprises to the candidates – focused on juvenile justice, mass incarceration & addiction, holding substance abuse centers accountable, environmental racism and classism, green spaces, trauma-informed practices for sexual violence, sex workers rights, and more. The list of questions is posted below and can also be downloaded here. We left so hopeful for the future of LA County!
