Two weeks ago, POWER Action played a key role in the Philadelphia District Attorney primary, formerly incarcerated and directly impacted LIVE FREE leaders had live conversations with 16,149 voters of color and sent 2001 text messages to African American millennial voters. The results are powerful – Larry Krasner – a long civil rights attorney who is well known for his work with BLM, and others, won the Democratic Primary.

This follows the amazing work done in Columbus, Ohio by the People’s Justice Project around the DA race there, and the victory that the Faith in Florida Action Fund won in 2017, when their voter program identified over 4,700 voters who committed to voting down ballot in the Prosecutor Race, ousting 16 year incumbent Mark Ober. His challenger, Andrew Warren won the race by 5,040 votes.

This is just the beginning, this year LIVE FREE will be continuing to support this critical work:

  • POWER Action will reach out to voters and run a candidates forum in the Philadelphia General Election
  • Faith in New York Action Fund will play a key role in the Brooklyn District Attorney Primary in September and the general election in November

In 2018 there are over 12 District Attorney and Sheriffs races:

  • Dallas County, Texas
  • Hennepin and Ramsey Counties, MN
  • Essex County, MA
  • St Louis County, MO
  • Alameda County, CA
  • Contra Costa County CA
  • Sacramento County CA
  • Fresno County, CA
  • Merced County, CA
  • San Bernardino County, CA
  • Riverside County, CA
  • San Diego County, CA
