Race and Digital Sanctuary in 2018 America

Recording: Race and Digital Sanctuary in 2018 America, Mar 10, 2018


Maya Wiley

The New School

We live in a hyper-connected, yet deeply segregated and unequal world. Whether wealthy or working poor, data collection and surveillance are facts of life; and so is our need to be digitally connected. In a country where race still matters and we debate who is worthy of being—and succeeding—in the US, do we all have the right to “Digital Sanctuary”?

Join Maya Wiley, civil rights activist and The New School’s Vice President for Social Justice, to heed the rally cry of Digital Sanctuary for all, and particularly for low-income, communities of color who in 2018 America, are most vulnerable. We’ll cover privacy, equity regarding surveillance issues and broadband deployment, the utilization of technology, and related work in NYC and Detroit.
