How Do We Reform?


Police Reform

Recruit properly trained police, increase pay, remove “bad” cops

Criminal Justice Reform

Equal justice for all & not only for the elite

More “Law & Order” will not Treat the Root of the Problem

Mandatory Sentencing

End Mandatory Minimum’s. Each case is unique. Allow judicial leeway.

Shorten Sentences

Rehabilitation cannot be a lifetime. Focus on education, training & reinstatement to society.

Reduce Incarceration

End jail sentences for nonviolent offenses.

Private Prisons

Close private prisons. No one must profit from the incarcerated

War on Drugs

End this failed policy that destroyed the lives of

millions & cost billions

Medical Treatment for Addiction

Addiction is a medical condition


The system has to change. It is rooted in a system of oppression and until that is no longer the case and rehabilitation actually is, it will never be a just system.
