The Brooklyn District Attorney’s Office held a Hispanic Heritage Month Celebration that featured a discussion with U.S. Rep. Hon. Adriano Espaillat at Brooklyn Law School on Monday.

The event was considered historic by Acting District Attorney Eric Gonzalez, who is fresh off a primary election win that has him set to be the first Hispanic district attorney in Brooklyn and New York state’s history.

“The people of Brooklyn have spoken in this election and what they have said and asked of us is that we continue to keep and make Brooklyn a safer place in ways that are more fair and more just and that’s what the DA’s Office is going to continue to do,” Gonzalez said.

“We are going to continue to lead this city and this country in being a progressive District Attorney’s Office — οne that knows how to keep people safe without throwing people in prison and without relying on jail as the first response to crime. It’s not about punishing people, it’s about helping people,” Gonzalez continued.
