COMMUNITY SPOTLIGHT :: OUR BODIES, OUR DATA, OUR CITY: A TOWN HALL ON THE CRISIS OF MASS SURVEILLANCE IN NYC
OUR BODIES, OUR DATA, OUR CITY: A TOWN HALL ON THE CRISIS OF MASS SURVEILLANCE IN NYC
Date & Time: Tuesday, October 17th
Facial recognition tech in our apartments. Constant monitoring of our workplaces. Decades of police surveillance of Muslim, immigrant, and BIPOC communities. Even when we don’t see it, government and corporate surveillance impacts so many parts of our lives. This surveillance targets New Yorkers in different ways, from increased incarceration, to police violence and deportation, to denial of basic services. But it doesn’t have to be this way.
Hosted by The Surveillance Resistance Lab, the Policing and Social Justice Project, Amnesty International USA! Our event will include a 1 hour panel to learn from organizers and advocates, followed by food and a community dialogue.
Attendance is FREE!
