CAPI Lunch Event: Meet Brooklyn District Attorney Eric Gonzalez

 
Join CAPI and Columbia Law School's Social Justice Initiatives on March 20 for a conversation with Brooklyn District Attorney Eric Gonzalez. DA Gonzalez is the first Latino District Attorney elected in the state of New York. During his brief tenure so far, he has emerged as a national leader on numerous issues, including:
 
- creating and leading the most robust Conviction Review Unit in the nation;

- changing the office policy on marijuana offenses so that most low-level offenses are no longer charged;

- working toward bail reform by having ADAs consent to release defendants for most misdemeanor offenses;

- implementing policies to avoid the disproportionate collateral consequence of deportation for undocumented immigrants by charging non-deportation offenses where possible.
 
When: Tuesday, March 20
 12:10pm-1:10pm

Where: Columbia Law School, Jerome Greene Hall, 435 West 116th Street, Room 104
