Former Assistant District Attorney

Most Creative People

Adam Foss was an assistant district attorney in Boston, Massachusetts. He has worked with singer John Legend to bring awareness to the harm of mass incarceration and to push for a reduction in teen imprisonment. During the 2016 Fast Company Innovation Festival, Foss sat down with Legend and three other activists for a panel on American criminal justice reform. Foss believes the U.S. should end incarcerations for low-level nonviolent drug offenders and consider the role environment plays in creating so-called violent offenders. He’d also like to see a change in how success in criminal justice is measured; instead of counting the number of trials won or convictions doled out, we should focus on how many lives were changed for the better.
