Des Moines City Leaders to Consider New Anti – Racial Profiling Policies
DES MOINES, Iowa -- The non - profit organization, Iowa Citizens for Community Improvement, filed a lawsuit against the Des Moines Police Department last month accusing it of racial profiling. Now, the group is calling on city leaders to carry out change. Over the summer Iowa CCI worked with the community to come up with ideas on how to tackle the issue of racial profiling. On Thursday, the group will present those ideas to members of the Des Moines City Council. For years, activists have lobbied for anti - racial profiling legislation but now they are taking a different approach.
