Racial profiling refers to all policies and practices by law enforcement that result in some groups of people being treated unfairly on the basis of race, on the basis of being perceived as "foreign" (ethnically-culturally, religiously), or because they are not considered to have equal rights.
The Alliance Against Racial Profiling is a movement of activists, academics and cultural workers, as well as human rights organizations and individuals, who fight against racial profiling and the structural racism associated with it.
What should I do if I am stopped by the police? Know your rights! Discriminatory police checks are illegal. However, they are an everyday reality for many people. There are only a few ways to defend yourself against them, especially because you run the risk that the police will fine you.
What to do when I observe a control? Become allies! When you become an ally, you show that you are aware, recognize the needs of other people and support them. You have a right to observe police stops and also to ask critical questions.
