Support the End Racial Profiling Act: A Second Call to Congress
OSPC and a growing number of national, state, and local civil and human rights organizations renewed their request for Congress to support the End Racial Profiling Act of 2011.
May 8, 2012
OSPC again joined a growing list of public interest groups to encourage the House
and Senate 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 persistent 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.
