For more than a decade, she has fought courtroom battles, representing over 3,000 New Yorkers who otherwise would not have been able to afford a lawyer. In March, Eliza announced her candidacy for Manhattan District Attorney, running on a platform designed to decriminalize poverty, end mass incarceration, and take on the inequities in our system and transform criminal justice in New York, and make New York safer for everyone.
