Tali came to America as a child on Christmas Eve 1979, having fled the violence of revolutionary Iran. She in turn has dedicated her life to fighting for safety, fairness, and justice for all. She served as a Law Clerk for Judge Merrick B. Garland at the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit, and at the U.S. Supreme Court for Justice Sandra Day O’Connor. Throughout Barack Obama’s presidency, she worked at the U.S. Department of Justice, first as Counsel to Attorney General Eric Holder, and then as a federal prosecutor. And most recently before stepping down to run for District Attorney, Tali served as the General Counsel of the Brooklyn District Attorney’s Office, which, under the leadership of Eric Gonzalez, is regarded as a national model of progressive prosecution, and which has kept crime – especially violent crime – at record lows for the borough. Here is a short video introducing the campaign – narrated by former US Attorney General and Stuy alum Eric Holder ’69.
