    We do not need our legislators sitting in town hall meetings “discussing” criminal justice issues. We need them to create legislation and policy that counteracts the years of mass incarceration policy and increase the amount of public accountability and oversight of the police departments in this state. Additionally, they must focus their time and attention on creating law and policy that will improve access to jobs that pay living wages and increase the availability of affordable housing. All of these BS “forums” and “town halls” on problems that we are all completely aware of is preventing them from doing the real policy work that will actually change these conditions. Thanks.
