Civil rights lawyer Larry Krasner is one of Philadelphia’s most outspoken and highly regarded progressive attorneys. For 30 years he has been fearlessly demanding fair treatment and justice for Philadelphians of all backgrounds.
Larry will transform a broken District Attorney’s office into one that focuses on the 6% of offenders who commit 60% of the serious crimes in Philadelphia. He will lead the fight for a fair and effective criminal justice system.
Larry stands up for immigration, disability and gay rights, as well as the right to free speech. He has defended, normally at no cost, protesters at RNC 2000 and DNC 2016, members of ACT UP, Black Lives Matter, Casino-Free Philadelphia, DACA Dreamers, Decarcerate PA, Earth Quaker Action Team, Heeding God’s Call, Kensington Welfare Rights Union, Occupy Philly and Reclaim Philadelphia, advocates of public school funding and opponents of the death penalty.
