Tim Shepard: We must end the school to prison pipeline

We must end the school to prison pipeline. We can do this by promoting equity, and increasing participation in our representative democracy. There are too many broken laws that regularly feed children into the prison system. This inhumane treatment disproportionately forces our most vulnerable citizens into a cycle of oppressive poverty rather then addressing the underlying problems that lead to the poverty. In order to restore democracy, we need to fix our most un-democratic systems and laws.

Tim believes it's always the right time to do what's right. When he learned about the injustices of the pre-school to prison pipeline, he didn't listen to his superiors tell him it's the wrong time to act. He jumped into action as the most vocal advocate for divestment from for-profit prisons at a $630 billion asset management firm. In the face of being de-platformed and having his livelihood and career threatened, Tim stood his ground. It worked, they no longer trade for-profit prisons.

Trudy Busch Valentine: Support robust funding for law enforcement, first responders

Trudy will support robust funding for law enforcement and first responders to crack down on violent crime, conduct long term investigations into drug trafficking, and promote community-oriented policing programs. Trudy is a fierce advocate for victims of crime and will vigilantly support the rights of survivors in the criminal justice process. Trudy also knows the power of treatment courts in lowering recidivism and will invest in funding to expand the number of treatment courts.
