breakthrough beat: Come for free screening in NYC
Kurdish American Karwan Abdul Kader (in photo) was detained and interrogated by local law enforcement for no reason other than driving around in the wrong neighborhood. He is one of many Americans who are racially profiled on a regular basis.
Save the date for an engaging evening of free screenings and discussion around race in America. Watch Restore Fairness’ Face the Truth and CHRGJ’s Americans on Hold, films that showcase the devastating impact of racial and discriminatory profiling on communities across our country.
When: Tuesday, December 7th, 6:30-9:30pm
Where: Furman Hall, New York University, 245 Sullivan Street, New York
Sponsored by the Rights Working Group, Breakthrough, NAAP, and the Center for Human Rights and Global Justice at the NYU School of Law, the evening is part of the Rights Working Group Conversations on racial profiling leading up to Human Rights Day on December 10th.
Together, we can stop the erosion of our fundamental human rights. Join the event on Facebook and make sure you join us for the screening and discussion!
