#KamalaHarris was a trailblazer as a first in each office she held- SF DA, CA AG, US Senator. BUT let's keep it in perspective that each of these roles were in institutions that existed for over 140+yrs. Change is hard yet #Kamala accomplished a great deal
#KamalaHarris was considered a progressive prosecutor. She sought to shift the focus away from capital punishment, three strikes, determinate sentencing--the crackdown mentality (causes of mass incarceration), to investing in crime prevention and rehabilitation. #KamalasRecord
#KamalaHarris for over 15 years has advocated for crime prevention resources over punitive measures. She has emphasized mental health services and breaking the cycle of crime and trauma. Her Back on Track program is just one example of how #Kamala delivered on that objective.
When faced with the fiercest opposition, #KamalaHarris stuck by her convictions and declined to seek the death penalty in a controversial case. It would've been politically expedient to reverse course, but #Kamala didn't citing the disparities in the death penalty application.
While #Kamala is a cop is used as a pejorative, it erases the trauma of victims. #KamalaHarris specialized in defending the most vulnerable: children & abuse victims. She faced down predators and she supported victims. She co-founded the Coalition to End the Exploitation of Kids.
In closing, #KamalaHarris has been a constant change agent champion. #Kamala has long advocated for crime prevention & rehabilitation. Her campaign proposals are a reflection of decades of commitment to criminal justice reform. #Kamala2020

I had to add this perfect example of #Kamala CONSISTENTLY expressing ideals long before they became Presidential campaign issues and opportunities. #Kamala2020 #KamalaHarris #ForThePeople
