Through the MacArthur Foundation’s Safety and Justice Challenge (SJC), the Association of Prosecuting Attorneys (APA) and the National Legal Aid and Defender Association (NLADA) are pleased to announce the launch of Collaborative Leadership for Racial Equity, a program for public defenders and prosecutors to engage in the work of advancing racial equity together. This six-month program aims to equip SJC defenders and prosecutors in the same jurisdictions with the tools needed to tackle both individual and institutional racism and advance their racial equity goals in their sites. We invite jurisdictions of all sizes to apply to participate in this program and engage in advancing racial equity and public safety for all people in their communities. We will select as many as four SJC jurisdictions to participate.
Further information about this incredibly exciting opportunity, including the timeline, and application requirements, can be found on the www.leadingforchangenow.com website!
