From her Senate campaign website:
Valerie supports a comprehensive reform of our criminal justice system, which would include decriminalizing the possession and use of marijuana for people over 21, ending cash bail, and strengthening anti-discrimination laws in our court systems in an effort to root out systemic racism in our criminal justice system.
She has sponsored legislation in the State Senate that aims to emphasize the importance of law enforcement to keep our communities safe while also holding bad actors accountable. She will continue this work in Congress by pushing for the passage of the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act.
