I want to live in a community that takes violence against women seriously and that is why I will vote to recall Judge Aaron Persky on June 5.
I am proud of the many survivors of sexual violence that have found their voices this year and think our justice system should be a place that actually means justice for them.
Persky’s light sentence of Stanford swimmer Brock Turner was just one of many in a history of bias for male athletes. It’s time that victims who are often re-victimized in trial know the justice system will be there for them.
Please join me in voting yes on Persky’s recall this June.
