Racial profiling erodes our dignity, threatens public safety, and leads to unnecessary detention, deportation and separation of families. It is also against the law. The purpose of Somos’ bias-based policing campaign is to protect our communities from discriminatory law enforcement practices and to ensure the implementation of New Mexico’s 2009 Prohibition of Profiling Practices Act.
HOW DO WE DO IT?
> Distribute civil rights information
> Help community members file administrative complaints
> Organize local campaigns to improve police and jail practices, including
campaigns to block enforcement of federal civil immigration laws by local agencies
> Support national anti-profiling legislation
