Monique Worrell, a brilliant and brave long-time activist for justice, just won her race to become the State Attorney for Orange and Osceola Counties in Florida!!! THANK YOU to everyone who supported her race.
Monique will instantly become one of the single most important leaders and voices in the nation when it comes to radically changing the justice and legal system from the inside out. This is more proof that supporting candidates matters, and that these elections are winnable.
Local prosecutors have incredible power in our justice systems. They decide whether to charge and prosecute cases. When a person is found guilty, they recommend a sentence.
But right now, the majority of prosecutors in America are white and funded by police groups. We’re changing that, but we can’t do it without you.
Real Justice has helped many local prosecutors win their races now, but each victory is hard-fought. We’re only able to do it with the help of a national network of people like you who donate or volunteer. On top of mobilizing donors and volunteers, Real Justice also contributes to races directly to help campaigns contact more voters, identifies opportunities to oust bad prosecutors, and does the work of recruiting good ones – especially public defenders – to run.
Once these prosecutors are elected, the fight isn’t over. Powerful actors who will do anything to maintain the racist status quo are constantly attacking the authority of these new, transformative leaders.
Let’s celebrate this victory, and then keep fighting!
