REIMAGINING OUR CITY ATTORNEY'S OFFICE.
Faisal Gill is running for Los Angeles City Attorney to restore trust to the office by bringing real accountability to the LAPD, pushing for progressive and pragmatic reforms, and taking on corruption wherever it exists.
Restoring the public trust starts with accountability and oversight—that's why Faisal signed the No Cop Money Pledge. The City Attorney is not elected to defend the police; they are elected to defend the city of Los Angeles and the people that make up that city.
From reducing the number of misdemeanor charges to ending cash bail and enhancing opportunities for resentencing, there are many steps we can take to ensure our criminal justice system operates fairly and equitably.
The City Attorney's office plays a crucial role in addressing the homelessness epidemic. Faisal will work to end the criminalization of homelessness, advocate for supportive services to reduce homelessness, and fight for affordable housing.
For decades, police have been putting forth the 'broken windows theory' - that visible signs of crime will encourage more crime. Now it is time to apply the broken windows theory to the police themselves. We must address every small police transgression so it doesn’t lead to a police officer committing more heinous acts. Police have not been held accountable for racial bias and excessive force, which has encouraged more incidents of racial bias and excessive force.
Los Angeles, at its best, is a city of opportunity, a place that shines brightest when every community can thrive. Our city government has long aspired to deliver on that vision - but we cannot get there unless all people feel safe.
That’s why I am running for Los Angeles City Attorney, to bring real accountability to the LAPD, push for progressive and pragmatic reforms, take on corruption wherever it exists, restore trust to the office, and ensure a safer city for all of us. Join me, and together let’s bring accountability to the LA City Attorney’s office and ensure justice for all.
