Are There Civil Rights in a Tech World?

Privacy and the internet is a common conversation today, but most have not understood it as part the civil rights conversation. The internet’s pervasiveness has made many believe privacy no longer exists and we are made vulnerable by the internet. Serious considerations must be given to whether or not we can and should extend civil rights protections to the internet. This panel explores how civil rights are more important, as applied to the internet, than many realize.
