A Movement For Equal Justice

Real Reform For A Stronger & Safer Miami-Dade

Melba is committed to commonsense reforms that focus on rehabilitation, reduce racial disparities, reduce pre-trial jail populations, and save taxpayers’ money. Resources saved by these reforms will be used to prioritize the prosecution of violent sexual crimes and violent gun crimes. It is time for a new era of accountability and justice in Miami-Dade County.

Restorative Justice

Work to repair the harm caused to victims of crime and prioritize rehabilitation over punishment.

Juvenile Justice

End the school-to-prison pipeline and keep kids out of the adult criminal justice system.

Real Accountability

Hold corrupt law enforcement and public officials responsible for misconduct.

New Priorities

Prioritize and aggressively prosecute domestic violence, sexual violence, and gun violence cases.

Equal Justice

Root out discrimination and racial bias that exists at every level of Miami-Dade's criminal justice system.

Meet Melba


Melba Pearson is an attorney who served as an Assistant State Attorney in Miami-Dade County for 15 years. She worked as a line attorney in the misdemeanor Domestic Violence Division, a prosecutor in the Felony Domestic Crimes Unit, and ended her tenure as assistant chief of the Career Criminal/Robbery Unit. As assistant chief, Melba supervised junior attorneys and prosecuted homicide cases.

In 2017, Melba left the State Attorney’s office to join the American Civil Liberties Union of Florida as Deputy Director. She worked to change police practices, expand voting rights, and reform the criminal justice system. Melba advocated on a local and statewide level to eliminate racial disparities in the criminal justice system and safely reduce the number of incarcerated Floridians.

Melba is running for State Attorney to implement commonsense policies that result in fewer incarcerated people, saving taxpayers’ money and safer communities.
