2/22- 28: It’s Time to Talk About Racial Profiling

February 10, 2010

via the Rights Working Group:

Night of 1,000 Conversations

February 22 – 28, 2010

Join the Racial Profiling: Face the Truth campaign for the Night of 1,000 Conversations to promote awareness and to take action against racial profiling.  Racial profiling is ineffective and unconstitutional.  It is a degrading practice and continues largely unchecked, violating the human and civil rights of those targeted.

There can be victories in the fight to stop racial profiling.  The examples above show what can happen when concern individuals join together at the local and state levels for a common cause.  Oftentimes, local actions can lead to greater changes at the federal level.

WHAT YOU CAN DO

  • Host a Conversation with your family, friends, colleagues, or community to learn more about the devastating impact of racial profiling and what you can do about it.
  • Visit www.nightof1000conversations.org for a toolkit (now available), conversation resources, and more information.
