Floyd v. City of New York: A Discussion of Stop-and-Frisks and Racial Profiling
The NYPD stopped and frisked 4.4 million individuals between January 2004 and June 2012 and over 80% of them were African-American or Latino/a.On August 12, 2013, in Floyd, et al. v. City of New York, et al., a federal judge found the NYPD liable for a pattern and practice of racial profiling and unconstitutional stop-and-frisks. Come hear from WCL alum Sunita Patel, a lead attorney for the plaintiffs in this historic case, followed by a panel discussion of racial profiling. The panel will feature David Harris, an author and national expert on Racial Profiling; Detective Diana Cobo of the Montgomery Count Police Department; and Jennifer Bellamy of the ACLU! The panel will be moderated by our very own Professor Angela Davis. We hope to see you there!
