The killing of black men in America is unacceptable. The status-quo of racist politics, policies, and institutions is unacceptable. There is no easy solution to solving these problems, but doing nothing is unacceptable. While the President’s words and actions are especially corrosive, no issue escapes the influence of racism -- healthcare, education, housing, climate change, the list goes on and on. But racism is especially felt in our criminal justice system. David Buchwald knows we must do more. In Congress, Buchwald will fight for critical criminal justice reforms, from reining in police misconduct and brutality, to ending mass incarceration.
David Buchwald’s criminal justice platform includes:
David Buchwald has been unafraid to take on his own party leadership to pass important reforms and fight for what’s right. He supports repealing 50-a, and has supported efforts here in New York State to decriminalize marijuana and voted to make it easier for former prisoners to vote by mail. In Congress, he’ll keep that reformer-mentality and fight for real change in our criminal justice system.
