The Racial and Identity Profiling Advisory Board was created by law last year, aiming to end racial profiling by police officers after a slate of officer-involved shootings of unarmed black men.

The new group was sworn in by State Attorney General Kamala Harris on Friday, as the country reeled in the wake of a week of violence that saw two black men shot by police, and 5 police officers killed by a sniper in Dallas.

The board has until the end of the year to come up with recommendations on how police collect data and information during routine stops.
