The Sikh Coalition, together with the national civil rights community, will unveil a mobile application that allows users to report instances of airport profiling in real time during a launch event at the offices of the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human on Monday, April 30 in Washington D.C.
The application creates a novel marriage between technology and civil rights activism. It is the first and only such application of its kind, allowing users in communities such as the Sikh, Muslim, Latino, or Black communities to document their experience at the airport.
The launch event will also be live-streamed here: http://www.ustream.tv/channel/sikhcoalition
About the author: Eurasia Review
Eurasia Review is an independent Journal and Think Tank that provides a venue for analysts and experts to disseminate content on a wide-range of subjects that are often overlooked or under-represented by Western dominated media.
Despite the combined Eurasia and Afro-Asia areas containing over 70% of the world’s population, analysis and news continues to be dominated by a U.S. slant, and that is where Eurasia Review enters the picture by providing alternative, in-depth perspectives on current events.
