Tim’s Plan

Promote Racial Justice

Mass incarceration has been an utter failure in this country and Charlotte has not been immune
to that. More punishment and harsher sentences does not reduce crime. In many circumstances, it
increases the fragility of vulnerable communities. Putting an immediate stop to the mass incarceration
policies of the current DA’s office will allow an opportunity to pursue racial justice. The reality is that
the foundation of our criminal punishment system is rooted in racism and white supremacy. That must
change. The disparate prosecution of Black and brown people is a moral crisis that undermines the
legitimacy of the entire justice system. As DA, I would pursue a system where outcomes are not
predictable based on race.
