Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Congressional Black Caucus November 2, 2015
Robert Scott, D-VA
"But whenever you get to describe what the problem is, we know what the solution is going to be, and that is to make sure that there is a consensus growing that we need body cameras so we can know exactly what happened and police training so that police can be properly trained on things like how to avoid profiling, how to avoid discrimination, and treating one group different from the other. Implicit bias is what it is called. There is a lot you can do in training, and we need to make sure we have funding for that training."
75Th Anniversary Of Long Beach Branch Of Naacp October 20, 2015
Alan Lowenthal, D-CA
"Despite all that has been accomplished over the years, the mission and goals of the NAACP remains an ongoing journey. Racial profiling remains a pervasive policy in both the workplace and in many police departments all over the country; inequities in the criminal justice system continue to overwhelmingly impact African Americans; and, threats to voter access continue to gain traction in certain areas of the country. These injustices show that the NAACP’s work is just as important today as it was when the Long Beach Branch NAACP was founded 75 years ago. While our recognition of past progress made under the leadership of the NAACP is critical and necessary, we also must look to the future and rededicate ourselves as Americans to the fulfillment of their goals of a truly equal and just society for all Americans."
A Tribute To Amelia Boynton Robinson, Congressman Louis Stokes, And Julian Bond September 28, 2015
Eleanor Norton, D-DC
"One of the things we indicated was that for all of the work of the youth of the civil rights movement of our day, we never touched racial profiling. It remained alive and kicking for a new generation, which has taken it on."
50Th Anniversary Of The Voting Rights Act August 6, 2015
Benjamin Cardin, D-MD
"This legislative change is a part of my BALTIMORE Act, S. 1610, the Building and Lifting Trust In Order to Multiply Opportunities and Racial Equality. I introduced this legislation after the death of Freddie Gray in Baltimore while in police custody. It also includes my End Racial Profiling Act, ERPA."
Combatting Anti-Semitism, Racism And Intolerance June 24, 2015
Benjamin Cardin, D-MD
"I have also introduced legislation to end racial profiling in the United States. The End Racial Profiling Act, S. 1056, prohibits racial profiling by law enforcement, mandates law enforcement bias training, requires data collection on all police stops, and creates procedures for receiving, investigating, and resolving profiling complaints. Tragic events in Baltimore and New York, North Charleston and Ferguson, and elsewhere around the country have shown us that Federal legislation finally ending racial profiling is essential."
