New DOJ report on Baltimore policing “revealing”

Washington DC, August 10, 2016 — The National LGBTQ Task Force is praising the Department of Justice for a new report which confirms systemic racial and gender bias in the Baltimore Police Department.

“This revealing report highlights what many of us already know and experience: the Baltimore Police Department shows unlawful gender bias against transgender people and that most of the police’s pedestrian stops are in black neighborhoods. This is a systemic problem that requires a systemic solution,” said Russell Roybal, Deputy Executive Director, National LGBTQ Task Force.
