#RespectMyVote to #EndRacialProfiling

 

Respect My Vote!Today the U.S. Senate is holding the first hearing on racial profiling since 9/11. Please tune into the live webcast of the hearing now.

The Hip Hop Caucus was asked by Senator Durbin of Illinois, who Chairs the Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights and Human Rights of the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee, to submit written testmony for this hearing. You can read our testimony here and comment.

On April 4, just a few weeks ago, we rolled out the 2012 Respect My Vote! campaign, to register, educate and mobilize young voters this year. This week we are dedicating the Respect My Vote! campaign to the movement to end racial profiling.

The tragic killing of 17 year-old Trayvon Martin in Florida by a man who racially profilied Trayvon, and the public national and global outrage at delayed justice for Trayvon, has brought the issue of racial profiling to center stage. Our prayers go out to the family and friends of Trayvon; their courage to stand up for justice is an inspiration to all of us.

Ultimately to make racial profiling illegal, and to repeal Stand Your Ground laws in the 25 states that have them we have to change policy. As we know, these policies are life and death for communities of color. Our voices as voters must be heard in order to change policy.

On behalf of the Respect My Vote! campaign and coalition, we say #RespectMyVote to #EndRacialProfiling. Join us on twitter and facebook, get registered to vote, pledge to vote on November 6, 2012, and sign up to volunteer. Do it all at www.RespectMyVote.com.

For Future Generations,
