George Gascón is making LA Safer by healing communities who have long suffered from an outdated and ineffective criminal justice system.
REJECT THE RECALL.
Recall proponents want DA Gascón to send children to adult prisons. Incarcerating kids as adults has never been shown to increase safety, but it has been shown to increase the likelihood that they will reoffend when they get out.
Recall proponents want DA Gascón to seek the death penalty. The death penalty does not deter crime, but it does drag victims through decades of appeals for a sentence that won’t be imposed given California’s moratorium on executions.
Recall proponents want DA Gascón to seek life without parole in spite of the fact that less than 0.5% of lifers released by the parole board commit new crimes against persons.
The top contributor to the recall is mega Trump donor Geoff Palmer who spent $2 million to reelect Donald Trump.
The Chair of the recall is former Republican city councilman Dennis Zine who was also a board member of the regressive, anti-reform police union, LAPPL, which spent $1 million to defeat DA Gascón in the general election last November.
Beleaguered LA Sheriff, Alex Villanueva, who has enabled a culture of Deputy Gangs in his department that is under investigation by the Department of Justice for myriad civil rights abuses, is the recall’s most prominent supporter.
Former District Attorney Steve Cooley, who said Black Lives Matter should be treated like, “organized crime,” is also a vocal supporter of the recall.
Surveys show victims of violent crime in Los Angeles support policies that promote rehabilitation and prevention over longer periods of incarceration–by a margin of 2 to 1.
From serving as a beat cop with the LAPD, to Chief of Police in America’s most progressive and conservative cities, to top prosecutor, George Gascón has reduced violent crime in every leadership position he has held over his decorated 40-year career in law enforcement. Gascón has reduced racial disparities in the criminal justice system, rates of recidivism, and has fought to end California’s over-reliance on mass incarceration. Gascón is bringing his data-driven reforms that are proven to enhance safety to Los Angeles County.
Stand For Change. Stand With Gascón.
Will You Stand With Us?
Thanks for Standing with DA Gascon.
Did You Know?
Between 2012 and 2019, Los Angeles County sent more people to state prison, per capita, than 56 of 58 counties in California. In spite of this, violent crime increased over 25%.
Mass incarceration and the dated policies backed by recall proponents haven’t made LA safer.

Their goal? To return Los Angeles to the failed tough-on-crime policies of the 1980s and 1990s.
