Des Moines Groups Target Racial Profiling

Activist groups launched  a project they hope will illustrate how common  racial profiling is in and around Des Moines.     The ACLU, the NAACP, and a coalition of churches known as AMOS are inviting people of color to come forward with their stories to document allegations that  law enforcement targets  individuals solely because of their race.
