GOLDEN GATE XPRESS -- “The main thing we do is come up with recommendations to give to law enforcement on how they can use data, track data, how that data can be transparent and allow community members to see that data and see who is being targeted and who is not,” Walker said. Walker was appointed by California Attorney General Kamala D. Harris to fill the position required for a representative between 16 and 24 years of age. “When I met Timothy Walker, I was moved by his story and inspired by his commitment to serve as an agent of change to make California a more fair and compassionate place for all of us,” Harris said in an email. “This critical conversation is unfolding here in California and across the nation, and as a powerful young man who has witnessed the sting of profiling firsthand, Timothy is one of the leaders at the forefront.”
