Faces Of Racial Profiling

WASHINGTON - Rights Working Group and local partners nationwide have released a report demonstrating the need to address racial, ethnic, religious and national origin profiling (“racial profiling”) across the country and finding that the patchwork of laws dealing with racial profiling is too burdensome for victims of profiling to navigate. Faces of Racial Profiling: A Report from Communities Across America gives voice to some of these individuals by featuring testimonies from the Face the Truth hearings.  Rights Working Group is bring these voices to Washington, DC, at a Congressional briefing on Thursday September 30th at 10:00am.

The Rights Working Group report documents the impact of racial profiling on affected communities. It examines the current legal framework for combating profiling and identifies gaps and needed reforms. Most importantly, the report makes recommendations to federal, state and local government officials to end the pervasive, ineffective and unlawful use of racial profiling in America. The Congressional briefing on Thursday, September 30, will include presentations from witnesses and Commissioners who participated in the Face the Truth hearings, as well as advocates and police chiefs who are calling for an end to racial profiling.
