Live tweeting #JusticeVotes2020 with #KamalaHarris. First Q: Why are you here? #Kamala discusses the "age old concept of redemption"." A civil society allows people a way to earn their way back." She made a conscious decision to become a prosecutor.
#KamalaHarris became a prosecutor so that she didn't have to ask permission for reforms. She created Back on Track which was unheard of at the time (remember she was elected in 2003) to reduce recidivism. #JusticeVotes2020 #Kamala2020
More on #Kamala's Back On Track which became a model program (designated by Obama/Holder DOJ) that expanded statewide when #KamalaHarris became AG.
#KamalaHarris rightfully points out that she is the ONLY one in the field who has dedicated her life to #CriminalJusticeReform. #KamalaHarris2020 Receipts ⬇️
#KamalaHarris did not just criticize the First Step Act but she also worked to improve it. #JusticeVotes2020 #Kamala2020
#KamalaHarris will address violent crimes and the harshest sentences as part of her plan which calls for re-evaluating lengthy sentences, expungement, etc. More on that...#JusticeVotes2020
#KamalaHarris talks about the treatment of incarcerated women and the collateral from incarcerating women. #Kamala's plan calls for decarceration of women, allowing overnight visits for mothers, distances parents are sent to prison. #JusticeVotes2020
#KamalaHarris is asked about the biased risk assessments in scoring. She brings up that she originally opposed 1st Step because the scoring would be decided by AG which at the time was Sessions. #JusticeVotes2020
#KamalaHarris will do a full audit on America's prison system to ensure profit is removed. She will shut down private prisons. Discusses the way prisoners are ripped off (I.e. $22 for soap, $1 min calls, expensive video chats). She will address this as POTUS. #JusticeVotes2020
#KamalaHarris is asked about how she will ensure humane treatment of prisoners. She has a plan for that. #Kamala2020 #JusticeVotes2020
#KamalaHarris will ban solitary confinement for children and adults. #JusticeVotes2020
I learned something new here, #KamalaHarris worked to ensure education was available in the prison system when she was Attorney General. #JusticeVotes2020
#KamalaHarris has a record of getting formerly incarcerated people access to higher education. Her commitment to this issue is real.

#KamalaHarris closes by saying the room is a room of leaders. She says the criminal justice system is one of the greatest failures. It has been punitive and not about redemption and she has always been about reforming the system. #JusticeVotes2020
Amazing, substantive discussion on #CriminalJusticeReform where #KamalaHarris clearly has the most depth and accomplishments in the field. Note how DIFFERENT the priorities are from formerly incarcerated individuals vs the smears that have driven the narrative. #JusticeVotes2020
I encourage you all to get familiar with #KamalasRecord on not just #CriminalJusticeReform but the multitude of causes #KamalaHarris has championed. Here is a start...#JusticeVotes2020 #KHive #Kamala2020 #KamalaHarris2020 #UnitedForKamala
