Report outlines the ways in which federal and state policies work to unfairly target African American and other minority groups, leading to devastating consequences in their ability to benefit from needed public services such as housing, healthcare, and education. It looks specifically at how local law enforcement practices use non-criminal offences, such as drug possession, to carry over into other areas such as access to public housing. It also points to the ways in which these practices have rippling effects for the individual, family, and community.
