I am wholeheartedly committed to taking down the school to prison pipeline. The for-profit prison complex is a new form of slavery. Public safety isn’t about profits. Our jobs as elected leaders are building and maintaining strong and vibrant communities. Non-violent drug offenders need counseling not solitary. I was on the Platform Committee that adopted the decriminalization of marijuana into the Party’s platform in 2010. The justice system should be just about that, justice. This is why our current bail system must be reformed. The “haves” and “have-nots” should be treated equally; not by the size of their bank account.
