NOW-NYC PAC Endorses Leslie Crocker Snyder for Manhattan DA

NOW-NYC PAC Endorses
Leslie Crocker Snyder
for Manhattan DA

Leslie Crocker Snyder has more than 30 years experience in New York City's criminal justice system. She co-wrote the Rape Shield Law, which makes the sexual histories of rape survivors in-admissible in court, and she founded the first Sex Crimes Bureau in the country. NOW-NYC believes she is the right candidate for the job: As Manhattan DA, she promises to relentlessly go after the pimps and traffickers who exploit women and girls and to create specialized bureaus dedicated to the areas of human trafficking, sex crimes, elder abuse, domestic violence, and child abuse. She's committed to boldly increasing the transparency and accountability of the DA's office by releasing statistics not only on convictions, but on arrests, indictments and plea bargains. NOW-NYC believes Leslie Crocker Snyder is the candidate who will most effectively address the epidemic of violence against women and girls.
