Protect vulnerable populations

Judicial District 18, which consists of Arapahoe, Douglas, Elbert and Lincoln counties, is a vibrant and diverse community, and all residents deserve to feel heard, respected, and protected by our courts. Amy will ensure that everyone in our district receives equal protection in her office.

 

Equal enforcement of the law

We must make sure that all offenders, victims, and witnesses are treated fairly regardless of their race, national origin, religion, income, and gender.  We must address the biases in our justice system, and Amy will tackle these issues head on. Justice must be fair, and our office must commit to ensuring fair treatment for all.


Hate crimes prosecution

When someone is targeted because of their identity, it is a harm against our entire community. In our diverse district, we must make sure that everyone feels welcome and safe, regardless of where they are from, what they look like, or who they love. Amy will take hate crimes cases very seriously and prosecute them to the fullest extent. Everyone is welcome in our community, and Amy will work to ensure their safety.


Protecting our immigrant communities

Immigrants are particularly vulnerable to abuse and exploitation. New surroundings, languages, and communities can be hard to navigate, and our immigrant population must be protected from those seeking to harm them. Amy is committed to welcoming new community members and ensuring they receive equal protection under the law. By making sure immigrants feel safe in the courts, are provided with interpreter services, and are kept fully aware of judicial processes, Judicial District 18 can remain the vibrant, diverse community we all know and love.
