Krasner was elected district attorney in 2017 after a campaign in which he promised to bring drastic changes to the criminal justice system in Philadelphia.

1. Thank you Mr. Krasner for joining the cause for structural change in our country

Warren facing a barrage of resistance from the Media (MSNBC) and Corporate Democrats. Only Elizabeth's courage, drive and endless energy with grassroots Americans can we do this. Persistence and never accept getting back to status quo.
