DES MOINES, Iowa-- Thursday, Iowa Citizens for Community Improvement met with Des Moines city leaders, and members of the community.
The goal was talk about a policy that would help combat racial profiling.
Advocates fought but failed to pass anti racial profiling laws this past legislative session.
Iowa CCI remains hopeful change can happen on a local level, but they need the help of Des Moines City Council.
The new policy suggestions would include:
"An ordinance that would ban racial profiling, stop perpetual stops, mandates data collection and transparency from Des Moines Police,” Sharon Zanders-Atkiss with Iowa CCI said.
Next, Iowa CCI plans to present their suggestions to the entire city council, a date for that has not been set.
