We all deserve safe neighborhoods and a sense of peace as we go about our daily lives. Our law enforcement deserves the support of our full community. It is an incredible responsibility to keep us safe and protect our neighborhoods in the face of real danger.
All people, regardless of means or background, also deserves equal and fair treatment throughout every part of the criminal justice system. Rena will fight to eliminate racial profiling and protect our civil liberties and privacy, while also working tirelessly toward a system that allows ex-offenders who have served their sentence every opportunity to re-enter society in fair, productive and meaningful way.
Additionally, Rena opposes invasive laws that would require police to question community members, based on race, ethnicity or their immigration status. She will work against dangerous proposals similar to Arizona's new immigration law. There is no place in Minnesota law for legalized racial profiling and harassment of innocent Minnesotans.
