Full Description: 

The purpose of this workshop is to discuss how Racial, Religious and Ethnic Profiling effects the civil liberties of different minorities across the United States. We hope to show the participants how to make an impact when it comes to civil liberties and profiling.

We will discuss the impact of profiling when it comes to law enforcement, travel, employment, visas and the exploitation of undocumented workers.

We hope to show that through local activism we can ensure fair government, law enforcement and employment practices.

Also by having organizations that represent different communities affected by profiling we hope to show that this issue doesnt just affect, Arabs, Muslims, African Americans or Latinos.

Near the end of the workshop both panelist will come together to strategize about how they plan to take action to become active on the issues highlighted during the workshop.
