AMPAC Statement on Carding

AMPAC has been advocating for Muslims and other groups regarding the issue of carding, particularly its unconstitutionality as a practice. Based on the detriment it causes to our community, feedback from community members about the desire to feel safe and have dignity, and while courts are deciding on its constitutionality, AMPAC stands by the assertion that carding should be abandoned as a practice by law enforcement. This change will not effect valuable projects in which information is solicited by law enforcement, including Project KARE, and will not stop police from being able to converse with members of the public in a constitutionally acceptable manner.
