Power of the Prosecutor

WashIP is working with several other community organizations that are deeply vested in the impact of the prosecutor in their communities. Some of these organizations include: The Federal Way Black Collective, Civil Survival Project, Witness to Innocence, Choose 180, The If Project, and ACLU of Washington.
