‘Campaign manager’ for criminal justice
In this document, foundations pooling their resources to seek changes in California’s criminal sentencing laws seek a “campaign manager” to run the new organization they are creating. It eventually is called Californians for Safety and Justice. The person hired for the position was Lenore Anderson, a former aide to then-San Francisco District Attorney Kamala Harris and later public safety chief for then-San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom. Properties on the original document show it was created in October 2011. It contains references to Tim Silard, CEO of the Rosenberg Foundation, and sponsors at George Soros’ Open Society Foundations in New York.
Anderson also became the director of Vote Safe, which launched a ballot initiative to reduce criminal penalties for drug use and petty theft.
