Congress: Pass the End Racial Profiling Act of 2011
OSPC and various civil and human rights organizations ask U.S. senators to pass the End Racial Profiling Act and establish a prohibition on racial profiling.
December 1, 2011
OSPC joined other public interest groups to encourage the Senate to pass the 2011 End Racial Profiling Act. The act would end prejudicial stops, investigations, arrests, and detentions based on race, ethnicity, national origin, or religion. Current federal and state laws do not provide comprehensive solutions to the problem of racial profiling. The End Racial Profiling Act would ensure federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies would not impermissibly consider race and various other forms of discriminatory profiling in carrying out law enforcement activities.
