Jeremy, just letting you know that there is very little money tied up in humans, tales, or the new connections site. Between them all, we could maybe pay an attorney for a couple of hours’ time. Those sites are all aimed at providing a human dimension and an outlet for registered persons.
I also want to assure those who wonder if I’m “picking on” one party or another… note that I carefully did NOT say any such thing. As Sandy remarked, both sides of the aisle have failed to turn anything around. And there are folks on both sides who would like to help. What we need to do is look at each candidate, from the top on down to the lowliest county clerk, and check what they have to say about punishment, redemption, decarceration, or the more insidious racist attitudes and SO stereotypes causing those in our Cause so much grief. Use THAT standard, not blue or red, black or white, religious or not, and this can help move the needle at least in terms of new laws.
