Chesa Boudin is running to be San Francisco’s next District Attorney. Both of his parents were arrested when he was just fourteen months old. That began a lifetime of involvement in the justice system — first as a young person visiting his parents in prison, then as a public defender and advocate for reform.
Now, Boudin is running on a platform of sweeping change. He wants to eliminate racial bias, start a unit to defend immigrants, and end mass incarceration.
