Hidden Injustice: The Prosecutor’s Paradox

As the nation continues to address alleged instances of racially based police violence and other incidents of institutional racism, the American Bar Association has made the elimination of bias in the justice system a top priority.  “Hidden Injustice: The Prosecutor’s Paradox” is the first tool of its kind to raise awareness and provide practical tips for America’s prosecutors on the impact of implicit bias and the necessary steps to combat it.  Featuring the nation’s leading prosecutors, law professors and experts, the 12-minute training video is one of the centerpieces of a toolkit designed by the ABA’s Diversity and Inclusion 360 Commission to help create a fair system of justice for all Americans.
