Democratic California Sen. Kamala Harris released her criminal justice plan Monday — it aims to end both mandatory minimum sentencing and the death penalty as well as legalize marijuana.

The policy platform also wants to gradually end for-profit prisons and “mass incarceration.” As the plan notes, the penitentiary population has increased to 2.3 million people today from 500,000 in 1980. To end “mass incarceration,” Harris is advocating an end to mandatory minimum sentencing policies that force judges to administer stricter sentences as well as allowing women convicted of non-violent crimes to serve their sentences outside of jail.

The article goes on to state the following:

The Democratic presidential candidate makes it clear that she believes, as a former prosecutor, she is well situated to both assess and reform America’s criminal justice system.

In a series of Twitter posts Monday morning, Harris announced:

Throughout my career, I’ve fought to reform our criminal justice system. My work on re-entry and racial bias has been a model for others — but we must do more. Today, I’m proud to release my comprehensive plan for reform.

My plan will transform our country’s broken criminal justice system by ending mass incarceration, holding law enforcement accountable, ensuring those in the system are given dignity, and getting profit out of the equation.

It’s time to end mass incarceration. This includes legalizing marijuana, sentencing reforms, and abolishing private prisons. With the addition of job training and education, these actions will reduce crime and help build healthy communities.

We must build trust between law enforcement and the communities they are sworn to serve. As president, I’d set a national standard to use deadly force only as a last resort to ensure accountability.

My criminal justice plan will ensure incarcerated individuals are treated with dignity and aren’t criminalized for poverty. This includes ending money bail and fines that criminalize poor and low-income people, and ending the federal death penalty and solitary confinement.

And we must protect the vulnerable. As president, I will clear the nationwide rape kit backlog in my first term, ensure corporate bad actors are held accountable, and fight for victims’ rights.
