Will you vote for Wilmington police to collect and publish data, including by race, on all pedestrian and traffic stops they conduct, including the reason for the stop?


Will you vote in favor of periodic psychological evaluations of Wilmington police officers? Will you vote for funds to mental health support for officers?


Will you vote for issuing all Wilmington Police officers body cameras?


Since police officers are public servants, do you believe footage from arrest and police misconduct should be made public record?

Will you require and fund Wilmington Police to operate a pre-arrest diversion program for people with substance abuse issues (a model similar to New Castle County’s Hero Help)?


Communities of color in Wilmington have borne the brunt of aggressive policing and war on crime policies for decades. Those communities also bear the scars of decades of discrimination in housing, education, and access to economic opportunity. What will you do as a Council member, Mayor, or treasurer to repair that harm?

Push for the names of officers involved in shootings and deaths such as Ricardo Hylton to be released.

Support independent investigations and independent media covering these cases.

Demand Body Cameras for police Nationwide.

I am in support of defunding the police and redirecting that money.

I am in support of hiring trained therapists to walk the streets counseling.

I am in support of more alternatives for the youth and for centers to be re-opened safely. I support mentor programs and self-defense training for the entire community to protect ourselves and each other.

I support the community including ex-offenders being trained to have these “soft” skills and hired to work where they live.

I am in support of the release of all political prisoners and what I consider circumstance prisoners and anyone who is not a threat to the public.

I will be a workhorse for the community and for all of the organizations FOR THE COMMUNITY working tirelessly on these issues instead of a drug-mule for the FOP, real estate developers and other corporate and political interests.

As a person branded “felon” who has spent the last 6 or 7 years of my life doing my civic duty and advocating against discrimination and for justice for the most vulnerable populations of people I will be a professional volunteer and spearheader.
