Today Los Angeles ushered in a new District Attorney, George Gascón, marking the beginning of a new era of justice reform. In Gascón’s virtual inauguration he announced his commitment to changing the Los Angeles justice system with several historical changes including ending three-strikes sentencing, ending the transfer of youth to adult court, retroactively ending all enhancements, ending cash bail for misdemeanors and non-violent offenses, and no longer pursuing the death penalty.

This new era of justice aims to focus on public safety, trauma informed care, victim’s needs, enhancing police and community relations, and saving taxpayer money. ARC is excited to work with Los Angeles District Attorney George Gascón to ensure that our justice system is equitable for all.
