Over the past year, thousands of people from across the U.S. have gathered in homes, offices, coffee shops, and places of
worship to talk about how government policies are undermining the
civil liberties and human rights of people living in America and how to
work together to ensure these rights are restored.
This year, participants will discuss racial profiling, an ineffective policy that violates constitutional and human rights protections.
