Add event to calendar

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.

Join the Racial Profiling: Face the Truth campaign for the Night of 1,000 Conversations and host a Conversation of your own.
