Actions and Detail Panel
Without Suspicion - Measuring racial profiling in Victoria
Thu. 8 December 2016, 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm AEDT
Public forum: Without Suspicion - Measuring racial profiling in Victoria
People of colour are more likely to be stopped by police in Victoria, but police are currently not required to record or report on the ethnicity of the people they stop - an essential measure to track racial profiling.
This event includes a panel discussion about the experiences and impacts of racial profiling on individuals and communities, trends in racialised policing and options for Victoria to gather and monitor ethnicity data for all police stops statewide. This will be followed by a Q&A and discussion about stop data and other strategies to prevent racial profiling by police.
Speakers include Maki Issa, Tamar Hopkins and Dr Victoria Sentas.
**Please note - room change** Given the number of RSVPs we have shifted to the larger Lecture Theatre G08, still at Melbourne Law School.
