Ending Racial Profiling
Racial profiling happens. It happens because the racism that was core to the founding of this country permeates the air we breath and our institutional structures. Changing that takes intention. Training is good, but it only goes so far. There must be monitoring and, when that is not enough, legal structures that help change behavior and attitudes. The Comprehensive Racial Profiling act of 2013 is a step in that direction. It is a step in building the trust and respect that we would like to see in our community. There are resources on the website as well, www.ristopprofiling.com. Please join in helping this be the year that this legislation passes.
