Law enforcement agencies often treat communities of color as inherently suspicious, casting doubt on their American identity and limiting participation in our democracy. This event will dive into the impact on communit­ies of color and present an oppor­tun­ity to learn about efforts to organ­ize and fight back so that every­one is gran­ted the oppor­tun­ity to feel at home on Amer­ican soil.
