Survey on racial profiling needs your help
Survey on racial profiling needs your help
Posted by Tara Manthey on August 23rd 2011

From our friends at the Catholic Charities of Arkansas:

The Arkansas Task Force on Racial Profiling is to serve as a forum for dialogue to promote awareness and understanding of racial profiling between the public, law enforcement agencies, and other government agencies.

Pursuant to that goal the Task Force is seeking feedback from the community on determining an effective and appropriate penalty for violating the prohibition on racial profiling. The Task Force would very much appreciate hearing from community members and organizations throughout Arkansas. Your responses will be confidential and will only be used in making recommendations concerning an appropriate penalty for violating the prohibition on racial profiling.

The Task force would very much appreciate receiving your responses to the survey and any recommendations that you have on or before Friday, September 23, 2011. Please feel free to disseminate this survey through your networks and among your members.

The survey can be accessed here:


If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at mgarcia@dolr.org.
