Real Justice PAC was founded by Shaun King, Becky Bond, Zack Malitz, and Michael Kieschnick in 2017 to push left-of-center policing and criminal justice policies. Real Justice PAC supports county prosecutors or district attorneys who support limiting or eliminating cash bail, restricting policing practices that left-of-center activist groups deem abusive, and decriminalizing drug, property, assault, and resisting-arrest offenses.
Because the prosecutors backed by the Real Justice PACs push policies that are against the professional advice of many stakeholders, they are frequently opposed by police officers, police unions, county prosecutors, incumbent district attorneys, judges, criminologists, and other officials within the criminal justice system. Real Justice PAC employs aggressive activist tactics to act as a “countervailing, pro-reform voice to hold newly elected prosecutors accountable” against any criticism of the effects of their policy objectives. 
The organization’s most significant donor is prominent liberal activist Cari Tuna, who contributed nearly $2 million to the PAC from 2017 through 2019.
The Real Justice PAC was founded by Shaun King, Becky Bond, Zack Malitz, and Michael Kieschnick in 2017 to push far-left policing and criminal justice policies.
Real Justice PAC provides support to candidates for county prosecutor and District Attorney offices who support limiting or eliminating money bail, restricting policing practices that left-of-center activist groups deem abusive, and decriminalizing low-level drug, property, assault, and resisting arrest offenses. 
The PAC uses volunteers in distributed field programs to knock doors, make phone calls, promote on social media, and use internet activism and peer-to-peer text messaging to support endorsed candidates. A training staff educates local volunteers and campaign staff on consumer software usage, voter contact specific platforms, call center software operations, and a cloud-based voter contact database. 
Shaun King leads the organization’s digital media operations. He uses social media activism volunteers and donors on the national, state, and local levels to push for candidates. A consultancy created by former top Bernie Sanders campaign staffers called Middle Seat provides “digital-in-a-box” technical solutions to run multiple county-level prosecutor races simultaneously. 
The Real Justice PAC supplies fundraising platforms via social media and national email list to raise money directly for candidates. Middle Seat consulting provides the PAC’s clients with “email fundraising in a box,” a suite of pre-coded and editable email templates. 
The PAC contributed $25,000 to the campaign of Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner (D), an advocate of left-wing criminal justice policies who also received substantial support from George Soros’s political advocacy network. 
Real Justice PAC supported the 2017 re-election of Portsmouth, Virginia Commonwealth’s Attorney Stephanie Morales (D). 
Of the 12 candidates Real Justice PAC backed for prosecutors’ offices in 2018, only three were elected. Real Justice PAC-backed candidates lost elections or primaries in Hennepin County, Minnesota;  Tarrant County and Dallas County, Texas;  and Alameda County, Sacramento County, and San Diego County, California. 
St. Louis County
Real Justice PAC supported the campaign of Wesley Bell for County Prosecutor for St. Louis County, Missouri against then-incumbent County Prosecutor Robert P. McCulloch. McCulloch was the county prosecutor during the controversy over the shooting of Michael Brown by a police officer. Bell has courted controversy since being elected by firing three prosecutors who had a role in the Michael Brown case. Three lawsuits were settled, one for $70,000, for wrongful terminations made by Bell.  Bell’s campaign received $57,500 from Real Justice PAC.
