ICAAD’s Statement on the End Racial Profiling Act Provided for a Hearing by the Senate Subcommittee

“Chairman Durbin, Ranking Member Graham and members of the Subcommittee:  I am honored to submit this testimony for the record on behalf of the International Center for Advocates Against Discrimination (ICAAD) regarding today’s hearing on racial profiling.  ICAAD uses coalition based advocacy and strategic litigation to combat structural discrimination both domestically and internationally. ICAAD believes profiling based on racial, ethnic, religious, or national origin is one of the most pernicious forms of structural discrimination. Instead of furthering our security, profiling disparately impacts specific minority or vulnerable communities and further marginalizes them. As societies continue to build walls of separation between communities, ICAAD’s mission is to remove each brick to illuminate our common humanity.”
