Speaking at a campaign event for Nina Turner, progressive Democrat AOC declared “I want to abolish our carceral system that’s design to trap Black and Brown men.”
“I want justice. I want peace. And I want prosperity,” she added.
Turner, who served as co-chair of U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders’ 2020 presidential campaign, hopes to represent Ohio’s 11th Congressional District. The seat was vacated by Rep. Marcia Fudge when she became secretary of HUD in the Biden administration.
