Professor Kami Chavis Simmons has recently published an article entitled, “Beginning to End Racial Profiling: Definitive Solutions to an Elusive Problem” in the Fall 2011 edition of the Washington and Lee Journal of Civil Rights and Social Justice.

In this article, Professor Simmons discusses problems of proving and sustaining racial injustice claims, the specific harms and impacts of racial profiling on minority groups and police-citizen partnerships, and legislative remedies to eradicate the issue.

Professor Simmons has previously participated in the Washington & Lee University School of Law 2011 Symposium: Traffic and the War on Drugs. As a guest speaker, she specifically addressed race and traffic stops.

The Washington and Lee Journal of Civil Rights and Social Justice is a biannual scholarly publication which aims to highlight the legal issues affecting underrepresented groups and minorities. The Journal seeks to explore the complexities and interactions between majority and minority culture as they relate to discrete legal issues.
