Philly D.A. is a groundbreaking documentary series embedded inside the long-shot election and tumultuous first term of Larry Krasner, Philadelphia's unapologetic reform-minded District Attorney, and his experiment to upend the criminal justice system from the inside out. Watch with us online each Sunday at 7pm ET -- for free -- and before the April 20th series premiere on your local PBS station!
Shortly after the airing of each episode, there will be a live panel discussion (starting at approximately 8 pm ET) featuring several nationally recognized criminal justice reformers.
Clause 40 Foundation does not participate in, or intervene in, any political campaign on behalf of (or in opposition to) any candidate for public office. The "Philly, D.A." docuseries from PBS, ITVS, and Independent Lens, concerns one particular office’s prosecutorial approach and we are presenting it to the public free of charge as part of an educational campaign on transforming the prosecutorial role to ensure a fairer and more effective criminal legal system.
