Criminal Justice and Community Safety, Pt 1: Hurt People, Hurt People

LisaMarie Betancourt interviews co-founder of the Prosecutors Alliance of California, Cristine Soto DeBerry for a conversation about lasting public safety.

  • How do we create safer communities for everyone? 
  • Who is harmed and what is criminal? 

In this episode, we talk about the impacts of crime and punishment in California, victimization, and how progressive prosecutors throughout California are critically engaging with the legal system to heal communities and prevent crime before it happens.
