Eliza and I have known each other for a while and I've always admired her dedication and passion. I was so thrilled when we could make time to connect on Eliza's run for Manhattan District Attorney and our criminal justice system. We dive deep into why the system is not in fact broken, but operating exactly as it was designed and what steps Eliza feels we need to take to have criminal justice reform. We discuss the inequities of the cash bail system and how the system treats juveniles and youth particularly Black boys and girls.
Eliza also chats with me about her upbringing, her family, why she became a public defender and what we can do to get involved in our communities. Plus, she shares a heartwarming story of how justice actually was served in an equitable and compassionate way.
This Feel the Good conversation will educate you, it will inspire you and motivate you to be a helper and get out there and understand how our criminal justice system works and how you can make sure your community Is operating from a place of true kindness, compassion and justice.
