The Project

I aim to empower Arab, Iranian, and other communities of color to challenge racial profiling and domestic surveillance practices, particularly those government actions arising post-9/11. This project uses a multi-faceted strategy that incorporates impact litigation, community education and coalition building in order to enhance the short-term and long-term capacity of the Impact Fund, other legal organizations and communities to challenge post-9/11 profiling.
