Adam Foss' incredible TED Talk is empowering a new generation of attorneys and activists to re-imagine the role of prosecutors. In this powerful conversation, Rev Brown and Adam Foss discuss:

  • How Adam's childhood in rural MA helped shape his worldview and led him to the work he does and how his first clerkship changed everything for his future
  • The incredible social and economic returns of keeping kids "out of the system"
  • The resources available to DA's offices beyond their "day job" of prosecuting crime to help their communities

Adam is a former Prosecutor in Suffolk County Massachusetts and is the Founder of Prosecutor Impact - an organization that helps train prosecutors on how to have a greater community impact.
