Mark Mishler has practiced law in Albany, NY since 1981, first as director of student legal services at the University at Albany for six years and then as an attorney in private practice. In 2000 he ran for Albany County District Attorney, endorsed by the Working Families Party and the Green Party.
This collection documents three decades of Mishler's political, community, and legal work on issues involving the city police force, police misconduct, and police practices with regard to civilian rights. Included are case files, court records, subject files, correspondence, clippings, reports, notes, background research, newsletters, and flyers for community events. The files detail Mishler's involvement with a variety of community organizations, such as the Albany Community Police Relations Board, the Albany branch of the NAACP, and the local chapter of Citizen Action. There is a small number of audio/video cassettes, and a small group of photographs. In addition, there are files and memorabilia documenting Mishler's 2000 political campaign for district attorney.
