The 1994 Crime Act was instrumental in stripping the rights achieved through the Civil Rights Movement. I will vote to repeal the Crime Act and to and defund states which maintain sentencing mandates that were enacted in response to it. We must end militarization of law enforcement and the programs which equip and promote it. I will introduce criminal justice reform legislation to fund and require de-escalation training as well as cultural and community sensitivity training. The bill will require an end to cash bail as a denial of due process, outlaw privatized prisons, and end the privatization of law enforcement services. It also will provide for funding and maintaining meaningful education, rehabilitation, and job training in prisons.
