The California Racial Justice Act (“RJA”), codified in Penal Code section 745, prohibits the State from seeking or obtaining a criminal conviction or imposing a sentence based on race, ethnicity, or national origin. It provides those who have been harmed by racial bias and discrimination in the criminal legal system the right to seek relief. Please join us in the presentation of this landmark legislation, which will define the RJA, its legislative intent and remedies, how Appellate Courts have interpreted RJA thus far, defense recognition of and preparation of RJA claims, and prosecution perspective and discovery as it relates to the RJA.
