(All Voices) Racial profiling has a negative impact on communities around the U.S., and Congress will face that reality at a briefing this morning. The Rights Working Group brings their short documentary film (top of post) and a report on the effects of the unconstitutional practice of racial profiling on various U.S. communities to the Reyburn Office House Building to brief Congress. Both the video and report urge Congress to pass the End Racial Profiling Act (ERPA),
Racial, ethnic, religious and national origin profiling (“racial profiling”) exists across the country and the report finds 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, a series of community gatherings held across the nation this year.
