Judicial Reform

– TODAY THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA HAS 5 PERCENT OF THE WORLD’S POPULATION, AND 25 PERCENT OF THE WORLD’S PRISONERS! THAT MEANS THAT here are today more than 2 million people incarcerated in the U.S., and millions more under probation or parole. We confine a greater percentage of our population than any other country.

– Almost 2 million children have a parent in prison, AND PROBABLY 1 of every 3 of those children will follow in their parents’ footsteps.

Children & Youth

They are our future and they deserve at least what previous generations left for us. Young people are dependent on us in so many ways and often have little say in what’s transpiring around them. Keeping kids in mind in all of our policy decisions and planning is of the utmost importance. We cannot rob their future for the comforts, shortcuts, neglect and indulgences of today. Supporting families is vital; a well-rounded educational experience for all children is paramount; social-emotional support and mental well-being is key; and we must be good stewards of the land we enjoy around us to ensure it’s healthy preservation for generations to come. I’ve valued spending much of my career working with young people, their families, and volunteering among them. They have so much to offer and they deserve our best.
