From @angelicaross – “In this conversation and several following this one, I called @kamalaharris in to talk about her record on trans people and sex workers and non violent offenders. She acknowledged her role in collaborating with the state that destroyed many Black lives and shared the moment she realized how she could use her position to change the system while still protecting us from violent offenders, especially those most vulnerable to domestic and intimate partner violence. I talked about trans women being out in men’s prisons and with men in ICE detention centers. I spoke on the need to decriminalize sex work to empower both cis and trans women. This was not just a photo op for me, this was an opportunity to truly speak truth to power. The ripple effect of this moment is evidence to me that I can indeed effect change. We all can.”
