Hillary is the "Law & Order" candidate, endorsed by Mariska Hargitay

...As for where I stand, I'm with her. I stand with Hillary, enthusiastically and with all conviction.

I can't think of a more succinct rallying cry for the anti-violence movement than Hillary's campaign slogan: Stronger together. We must indeed all work together to dismantle the deeply entrenched societal attitudes that have helped perpetuate this violence for so long, attitudes that have found such a dismaying spokesman during this election cycle.

The challenges we face as a nation in bringing an end to this violence are formidable. We need a President—and an administration—who will not only keep these issues at the forefront of domestic and international policy, but also will hold out a vision for a future free from these crimes. Whether it is arguing for change in how campuses address the epidemic of sexual assault, drawing attention to the use of rape as a weapon of war, or advocating for the criminal justice system to do all that it can to ensure victims of sexual assault have full access to all the tools at law enforcement's disposal, including the mandatory testing of all rape kits, Hillary has a vision and a plan for action. And after a lifetime dedicated to working for the rights of women and girls, her vision and her plan are informed, hard-won, and comprehensive.
...
And yes, Hillary, in case you were wondering, this makes you the "Law & Order" candidate.

3. My answers come down to this: Don't be a bystander.

 

My answers come down to this: Don't be a bystander.

As the 2016 election nears, I cannot urge strongly enough: Be involved. Vote.

smart and thoughtful endorsement!
