In the wake of the Supreme Court’s decision on Arizona’s racial profiling law, many are asking: Is it possible to enforce section 2(b) of Arizona’s infamous SB1070 without using racial profiling? With perspectives from organizers, legal experts, and law enforcement, speakers on this call tackled that question and drew on examples of policies such as Stop-and-frisk and unwarranted surveillance that encourage racial profiling across the country, as well as offered solutions to address all forms of racial profiling. Expanding the discussion beyond immigration, the call examined what 2(b) means from a racial profiling lens, and shared strategies on how to connect communities impacted by discriminatory policing.
