what is C.a. Difference?

C.A. Difference is a campaign to raise public awareness of the critical and powerful role elected prosecutors play in shaping Virginia’s justice system. C.A.’s can make a big difference, and with elections on the horizon in 2019, now is the time to use your voice and your vote to make our criminal courts fairer for everyone


Commonwealth’s Attorneys — or “C.A.’s” for short — are the elected chief prosecutors in every county, city and town in Virginia. They are the most powerful individuals in the criminal justice system, shaping justice policy, deciding who gets charged with a crime and which crimes to enforce, and even exerting a powerful influence in the legislature.
