The Nova Scotia Human Rights Commission is seeking input from HRM residents on their experiences with the police practice of street checks and racial profiling.
Nova Scotia Legal Aid would strongly encourage the public and any HRM staff to participate in this important work. Results from this survey will be incorporated in the report of Professor Scott Wortley, the expert hired to make findings on this issue.
Systemic racism has long been recognized as a reality that members of our African Nova Scotian communities must face on a daily basis.
This is an opportunity to provide feedback on personal experiences with the police and perhaps contribute to meaningful change moving forward. The survey takes approximately ten minutes, the link can be found below.
