Eight Steps to Justice

District attorneys are responsible for safeguarding the rights of all Oregonians, but too often our criminal justice system fails our communities. It’s past time for our criminal justice system to put public safety and health first. That’s why our coalition—led by the communities most harmed by a broken system—are calling on district attorneys to take real steps to justice.

Here are eight ways District Attorneys can shrink the number of people in prison, jails and on supervision, address racism in the criminal legal system, and invest in safer communities for us all.

Check out the 8 Steps video clips to learn more about them — and how you can advocate for change!
