Policy Practicum: Race, Gender and Prosecution

This policy practicum will focus on the gender and racial diversity of prosecutors’ offices in California. Although police departments have collected and reported data of this kind for decades, no similar information is publicly available for prosecutors, despite the longstanding belief that diversity is important for criminal justice decision makers. Recent controversies around the country about the investigation and prosecution of killings by police officers have only underscored the continued importance of attention to the role that race plays in the administration of justice in our country.
