Criminal justice reform is the civil rights issue of our time and I support bold reforms that achieve greater racial and social justice across Virginia. In Richmond, I will always support:
Prison/jail reform that eliminates solitary confinement and ends mass incarceration through the reinstatement of parole, record expungement, and other sentencing reforms.
Police reforms that improve transparency, create accountability, and shift law enforcement encounters away from persons who are homeless, those suffering with mental illness, or substance abuse.
Repealing the death penalty.
Ensuring fairness in our judicial process and strengthening Virginia’s indigent defense system.
