MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - Racial profiling will be the focus of a panel discussion during the American Civil Liberties Union of Vermont’s annual meeting this weekend.

The 48th annual meeting takes place on Saturday at the Capitol Plaza in Montpelier.

The panel includes Burlington’s new police chief, the executive director of the Vermont Human Rights Commission and an adjunct faculty member of the University of Vermont who specializes in racial disparities in health care.

ACLU-VT’s executive director Allen Gilbert says the goal of the discussion is to look beyond racial profiling and to try to understand its roots in the country’s history and individuals’ lives.
