Civil Rights Forum Meeting - Racial Profiling
Sunday, June 23rd at 4:00 pm
1600 N Harrison St, Davenport, IA (map)
Civil Rights Forum
During our recent Race: Are We So Different discussion circles we heard stories of recent racial profiling by police in Bettendorf. At this monthly meeting, we will update members about the Car Theft Accountability Program and our efforts on immigration, but most of the meeting will be devoted to the issue of racial profiling.
The Davenport Citizens Advisory Panel (D-CAP) has been working on racial profiling in Davenport for about 10 years. Representatives from LULAC, Quad Cities Interfaith, and the NAACP meet monthly with the Davenport Chief of Police and his command staff to monitor racial profiling. They have had a significant impact on the problem.
Loxi Hopkins and others from D-CAP will give us information we can use to set up citizens advisory panels in other cities in our area. As a resident of Bettendorf, I want to help start a B-CAP! Join us to learn more.
