Racial or ethnic profiling causes targeted minorities to live in fear of police and destroys public trust in law enforcement. We work collaboratively with police forces to develop frameworks to help law enforcement build open and positive relationships with the communities they serve.

We also support the efforts of grassroots activists and leaders as they work to promote safe communities, transform police culture, propose policy changes, and ensure accountability when abuses occur. To put an end to the unlawful practice of racial profiling, we have also documented widespread, systemic discrimination in a number of European Union member states, exposing the extent of this problem in Bulgaria, Hungary, Spain, France, and Russia.
