In this webinar, Vivek Venkatesh will draw from elements of the PROFILE toolkit to present the perspectives of various stakeholders in community — law enforcement, mental health and education —  to better understand why we are at a collective impasse over profiling.

Launched this summer, PROFILE is a practical toolkit against racism and bias designed to confront the insidious and systematic practice of racial and social profiling.
