BWFO Endorses Kamala Harris for California Attorney General


WASHINGTON, D.C. – Black Women for Obama for Change, (BWFO4Change) announced today their endorsement of San Francisco District Attorney Kamala Harris, Esq. for the next Attorney General of the State of California. In a joint statement, BWFO4Change Co-Chairs Dr. E. Faye Williams, Esq. and Dr. Stephanie E. Myers said, “We applaud the vision and tenacity of Kamala Harris to tackle reform of the criminal justice system in California, and to work to improve the educational system. Her new and innovative ideas regarding reform in the California justice system and in public education will set the tone for the rest of the nation. As former residents of the State of California, we are confident that wise California voters will elect Kamala Harris to be the next Attorney General of California. We are proud that her election will make her the first African American woman to be elected to Attorney General, in a major State.

California State Assembly Speaker Emeritus Karen Bass, Candidate for Congress, 33rd Congressional District of Los Angeles, stated, "We have an incredible opportunity to elect an Attorney General who has innovative ideas to prevent and reduce crime. I am proud to say we have worked together to pass legislation in California that replicates the Back on Track program created by District Attorney Harris to reduce recidivism."

Clem Clarke, BWFO4Change/San Francisco and bay area community organizer commented, "Kamala Harris is the only choice in this race for California Attorney General. She is not only tough on crime, but she is smart on crime. I hope that everyone around the nation will encourage their friends, family members and colleagues who live and vote in California, to join us in our support of the next California Attorney General – Kamala Harris."
