Are You Being Racially Profiled?

by Alexandra Hanson-Harding

Who does it happen to? And what can someone who is at risk of racial profiling do about it? Through advice from professionals and stories from teens who experienced racial profiling, learn the answers to these questions as well as what to do if you get into legal trouble and how you can help raise awareness about this unfair practice.
