On April 16-20th, the National End Racial Profiling Advocacy Week will bring together communities across the country for a week of advocacy and activism to end the discriminatory practice of racial profiling. And on April 18th, advocates, organizers, and community members will convene in Washington, DC to share this message with their representatives in Congress. Together as impacted individuals, community and faith leaders, law enforcement officials, and advocates, we will meet with members of Congress to urge them to take decisive action by co-sponsoring the End Racial Profiling Act of 2011 and by putting pressure on the Department of Justice to reform its 2003 Guidance Regarding the Use of Race and Ethnicity by Federal Law Enforcement Agencies.
From April 16-20, as part of the ongoing “Racial Profiling: Face the Truth” campaign, we are asking our local partners to visit their members of Congress during the National End Racial Profiling Advocacy Week. Join forces with us to give voice to this critical issue and help end racial profiling for all communities.
