At Auschwitz we see the end of the long process. It's important to remember that the Holocaust did not start from gas chambers & murder.

The hatred slowly developed from ideas, words, stereotypes & prejudice, through legal exclusion, escalating violence & dehumanization.

In case anyone missed it - UNARMED.

"The killings have led to at least 30 judgments and settlements totaling more than $142 million, records show. Dozens of lawsuits and claims are pending."

Civil liability IS NOT sufficient accountability mechanism.

The Supreme Court does not add any cases to its docket. It sends the Trump emoluments case back to the lower court with instructions to dismiss as moot.

Our report released yesterday finds that 1.1M renter households in CA are behind on rent, $3,400 on avg, with $3.7B total rent debt. To prevent mass eviction and make inclusive recovery possible we must extend the moratorium & #ForgiveRentDebts.

This is a step.
In Dec 2016, then-CA AG Kamala Harris took similar steps with respect to Bakersfield PD and Kern Cty Sheriff before she became a Senator.

The moment that sticks with me, when Garth Brooks shook Biden's hand then leaned over to shake with Pence. And Harris broke in and made him shake her hand, too. Even on inauguration day it is a fight!

Quoted @latimes

California courts are bracing for eviction cases to double over the next year as pandemic-related financial woes deepen for thousands of renters across the state.

“Last month, a U.S. Census Bureau survey found that more than 1.9 million adult Californians living in rental homes reported being behind on their rent.”

California, a state of 40M people, is only getting 400k-500k doses of vaccine in a good week, says state health officer Dr. Erica Pan. At that rate it’ll take 20-22 weeks to vaccinate the 65+ population alone, Pan says during state vaccine committee meeting

No skimping on the 6th Amendment! #Publicdefenders must get the time and $ they need to do the job. We're suing!

We have a criminal justice system that treats you better if you're rich and guilty than if you're poor and innocent. #Right2Counsel
