Real Justice PAC is excited to endorse Tahanie Aboushi to be the next District Attorney (DA) of Manhattan.
Few DA’s offices in this country have caused more harm, and done more damage, to more people, than the Manhattan DA’s Office. New York is facing a mass incarceration endemic. 443 out of 100,000 people have been put behind bars, disproportionately affecting people of color.
Tahanie has experienced first hand the destruction that pro-incarceration and anti-immigrant elected officials have caused in communities in Manhattan. When she was just a child, her father was sentenced to 22 years in prison for non-violent crimes. So she understands all too clearly the ways our current system’s lack of support undermines the safety of all New Yorkers.
As one of New York’s most outspoken and respected progressive attorney’s, Tahanie has shown that she is committed to the fight for fair treatment for all New Yorkers regardless of their background.
