Philadelphians will go to the polls to vote in the primary election for District Attorney on May 16. Democrats will be able to cast their votes for one of seven candidates in the race to become the city’s top prosecutor. In order to prepare our members and civic partners for this decision, the Chamber will host the candidates for District Attorney in a forum-style discussion.

This event will provide attendees with the opportunity to understand the business issues that are relevant to the race for Philadelphia’s next District Attorney. The candidates will respond to moderated questions and audience Q&A; offering their perspectives on topics such as criminal justice reform, public safety and avoiding recidivism.

Invited candidates to date:
• Teresa Carr Deni
• Tariq El-Shabazz
• Joe Khan
• Lawrence Krasner
• Rich Negrin
• John O’Neill
