East Midwood Jewish Center
The Executive Director Series at EMJC, a speaker series at the landmark East Midwood Jewish Center, will
kick off its 2019-2020 series with progressive prosecutor Brooklyn District Attorney Eric Gonzalez, on
Tuesday, September 10, at 6:00 pm in the Grand Ballroom of the historic building at 1625 Ocean Avenue.
Following his swearing in as Brooklyn District Attorney, Eric Gonzalez launched a ground-breaking initiative
known as Justice 2020, to help him carry out his vision of keeping Brooklyn safe and strengthening trust in our
justice system by ensuring fairness and equal justice for all. Justice 2020 consists of a 17-point action plan —
created by a committee of criminal justice reform experts, defense groups, service providers, law enforcement, formerly incarcerated individuals, clergy and community leaders — to make the Brooklyn District Attorney’s office a national model of what a progressive prosecutor’s office can be. This blueprint will transform the work of Gonzalez’s office by shifting toward preventative and accountability solutions with a track record of success, and away from over-reliance on criminal convictions and incarceration.
Series organizer, Executive Director Wayne Rosenfeld said “We are proud to host this trailblazing speaker to
address his vision for how to keep Brooklyn safe.”
This event is FREE and open to the public. Donations are welcome.
