Entry Title Date
In Recognition Of Ronald Davis February 27, 2014
Jackie Speier, D-CA
"He has co-authored multiple publications, including the National Institute of Justice’s “Exploring the Role of the Police in Prisoner Reentry,” the Department of Justice’s “How to Correctly Collect and Analyze Racial Profiling Data: Your Reputation Depends on It,” and the Police Executive Research Forum’s “Chief Concerns: The Use of Force.”"
Addressing Afrophobia In Europe February 25, 2014
Alcee Hastings, D-FL
"An estimated seven to ten million individuals of African descent currently live in Europe, particularly in France, the United Kingdom, and The Netherlands. These populations form an influential part of the African Diaspora. From labor and scholarship to politics and civil rights, they have contributed greatly to European history and culture over the past several centuries. However, the story of Black Europeans remains widely untold, rendering many of their past and present contributions to the political and social life of Europe invisible or forgotten. Furthermore, similar to the experiences of many African Americans, they have increasingly become the targets of discrimination, pernicious racial profiling, and violent hate crimes impacting equal access to housing, employment, education, and justice."
America’S Foreign Policy January 29, 2014
Louie Gohmert, R-TX
"I mean, how many heads-up notices do you need to figure out there is a problem, and innocent Americans are going to be killed and maimed as they were in Boston? It is time to wake up. Yet we get this story from Matt Apuzzo. The picture was from the Associated Press, January 15: “U.S. to Expand Rules Limiting Use of Profiling by Federal Agents.”"
Executive Session—Continued January 13, 2014
Patrick Leahy, D-VT
"During his time at the Public Defender Service, Judge Wilkins served as the lead plaintiff in a racial profiling case, which arose out of an incident in which he and three family members were stopped and detained while returning from a funeral in Chicago. This lawsuit led to landmark settlements that required systematic statewide compilation and publication of highway traffic stop-and-search data by race. These settlements inspired an Executive Order by President Clinton, legislation in the House and Senate, and legislation in at least 28 States prohibiting racial profiling or requiring data collection."
