Faces of Racial Profiling: A Report from Communities Across America


On September 27th,  Rights Working Group and local partners nationwide released a report demonstrating the need to address racial, ethnic, religious and national origin profiling (“racial profiling”) across the country and finding that the patchwork of laws dealing with racial profiling is too burdensome for victims of profiling to navigate. Faces of Racial Profiling: A Report from Communities Across America gives voice to some of these individuals by featuring testimonies from the Face the Truth hearings.

To complement the report, Rights Working Group and Breakthrough produced a ten-minute documentary, Face The Truth: Racial Profiling Across America. To watch the video please go to: www.rightsworkinggroup.org/content/face-truth-racial-profiling-across-america

For the Executive Summary of the the report please go to:
