Janos Marton is a lawyer and criminal justice reformer who has spent his career fighting against powerful interests and standing up for New York communities. Marton was born and raised in Manhattan’s Upper West Side. As a young man of color growing up in 1990s New York City, Marton experienced firsthand how “tough on crime” tactics like stop and frisk eroded the community’s trust in law enforcement and failed to promote public safety.
His childhood in New York City inspired Marton to build a career as a legal advocate fighting against powerful interests and standing up for New Yorkers. He was Special Counsel to the Moreland Commission to Investigate Public Corruption. After leaving the Moreland Commission, Marton was chosen as a leader of the #CLOSErikers a campaign to shrink the New York City prison population and close its most infamous jail.
