D.A. Bragg delivered remarks and addressed questions on his plan to delivery safety and justice for all in a conversation with Arva R. Rice, President and CEO of New York Urban League and Jessica Orozco, Chief of Staff at the Hispanic Federation, moderated by Rachel Barkow, Vice Dean and Charles Seligson Professor of Law, and Faculty Director of the Peter L. Zimroth Center on the Administration of Criminal Law.
“Manhattan is home to countless art museums, galleries, and antique stores – there’s no shortage of beautiful art around every corner,” said District Attorney Bragg.
“The two goals of justice and safety are not opposed to each other. They are inextricably linked. We deserve and demand both, and that has been the focus of my career, and indeed, my life.”
“Art is a window into the past, and particularly with pieces of this age, it’s often the only opportunity we have to study civilizations long-gone,” said District Attorney Bragg.
“This remarkable antiquity is the first from Michael Steinhardt’s $70 million collection of 180 looted and stolen antiquities to be repatriated to its country of origin,” said District Attorney Bragg.
