Today's verdict is just the beginning

        Dear John, What happened to George Floyd -- and too many other Black folks in America -- is bigger than any one cop being convicted. Training is essential and diversity is imperative, but so are convictions for all of these deaths at the hands of law enforcemen…

In the midst of a tragic year, there was hope

Friend, Now that we have finally left 2020 behind, I’m taking time to reflect on the hardships, the pain, and the glimmers of hope this past year held.    The COVID-19 pandemic hit our City, and especially our District 10 community, brutally hard. I stood with far too many families to mourn t…

We’re in the home stretch! Make your plan to vote today!

Friend, With just five days left until Election Day, it's time to do all we can to make sure we pass Proposition D. We are tired of unanswered questions from the Sheriff’s Department, and we demand justice for those impacted by the decades of misconduct. There’s too much at stake for our commu…

Ending structural racism is on the ballot

Friend, We know that passing Proposition D is vital to dismantling the structural racism embedded in our criminal justice system. We see that same racism affecting our Black and brown kids in our schools––we know they haven’t received the resources or the opportunities that they deserve. That’…

We need you to ensure accountability is on the ballot

Friend, Our opposition argues that creating a new, independent body to oversee the Sheriff's Department is duplicative when the Department of Police Accountability (DPA) has already been hired to do that -- this is false! The Department of Police Accountability has had four years to uphold the…

Racism is not getting worse, it's just being filmed
