On May 19th, we received the DFL endorsement for Hennepin County Attorney by an overwhelming margin. The values that led to the monumental support for this campaign are ones we all share, regardless of political affiliation - fairness; accountability for all; system transparency, integrity, and effectiveness; and second chances.
Urban and suburban voters, survivors and criminal justice reform activists, new immigrants, people of color, and faith leaders resoundingly affirmed that it is time to reclaim justice and build trust. It's time to reject failed policies that deprive many of second chances and that have resulted in mass criminalization and some of the largest racial disparities in any justice system in the nation.
Now is the time for all voters throughout the county to unite and work together to ensure all of us have the same access to second chances and justice, regardless of our zip code or the color of our skin. Together, we can build a better justice system for everyone in Hennepin County.
