(KMOV)--The group Citizens Against Racial Profiling is calling those who are opposed to racial profiling to speak up.

The group is asking concerned citizens to attend the next Ladue City Council Meeting on June 21st at 4pm, following a report from Missouri Attorney General Kris Koster.  

According to the report, African Americans are 1,700 times more likely to be stopped by police than whites in Ladue.

The city says the numbers are skewed because of the two interstates that run through its borders.

The group is calling for similar action at the City of Frontenac meeting on July 8th.
