Event Description

Screening and Discussion: Philly DA, Episode Two and “The Institutional Status Quo in Prosecutors’ Offices”

Profs. Anil Kalhan and Tracy Tripp ’10 invite students, faculty, and staff members to join a screening and discussion in connection with this semester’s Criminal Legal System Reform event series. On Thursday, September 8, at 6pm, we will screen and discuss Episode Two of the eight-part documentary series, Philly D.A. In this episode, “Larry Krasner and his team battle for access to the complete police misconduct files as an angry public demands the District Attorney release the names of officers deemed unfit to testify in court. Meanwhile, tensions boil between new Assistant District Attorneys and seasoned veterans in the juvenile unit over juvenile sentencing alternatives.” A discussion will follow the screening. 

All Drexel community members, especially first-year students, are encouraged to attend. The documentary series explores the possibilities and limitations of the role that prosecutors can play in pursuit of broader criminal legal system reforms—and prominently features two Drexel alumni who have worked in senior positions with Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner. While the episodes are presented as a series, different episodes emphasize distinct themes and can stand alone without watching all of them, so we encourage interested community members to attend individual screenings that may be of interest even if you are unable to attend the entire series over the course of the semester. 

If you have questions, or are interested in receiving regular updates about the event schedule and suggested reading materials for specific topics addressed in the series, please email Siqi Cheng and she will make sure you are added to our email distribution list.
