District Attorneys are the First line of defense for people seeking abortions.

Over 90 DAs have pledged to protect people seeking abortions by choosing not to prosecute — even if abortion is made illegal.

While the fight in Congress will move slowly ahead, it’s District Attorneys who can protect people NOW. One-third of Real Justice-endorsed DAs are in states that have or will likely ban abortions. Help us elect and protect DAs who will fight against this attack on our rights — add your name.
