CARDIN JOINS THE BALTIMORE URBAN LEAGUE FOR

AN UPDATE ON EFFORTS TO END TO RACIAL

PROFILING BY LAW ENFORCEMENT

 

 

Tuesday, August 27 at 1:00PM, U.S. Senator Ben Cardin and the Baltimore Urban League will host a roundtable discussion on legislative efforts to end racial profiling by law enforcement. Earlier this year, Senator Cardin reintroduced the End Racial Profiling Act (S. 1038), which has 16 cosponsors including Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) and Assistant Majority Leader/Judiciary Committee Member Dick Durbin (D-IL). He recently joined with Rep. John Conyers (D-MI), author of the House companion bill, and leading civil rights groups to urge their colleagues in the Senate and House to come together to pass this important legislation. 

 

The End Racial Profiling Act is designed to enforce the constitutional right to equal protection of the laws by eliminating racial profiling through changing the policies and procedures underlying the practice. It has been endorsed by the NAACP, the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, the Rights Working Group, American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), and 136 other national, state, and local civil and legal rights organizations.
