Featured Session: Big Brother Is Racist: Surveillance vs. Persons of Color

This panel will discuss how surveillance and surveillance technologies, historically and currently, have been disproportionately deployed against persons of color, as well as the harmful impacts of such deployments. We will also discuss the ACLU-led Community Control Over Police Surveillance campaign (CCOPS), which has passed laws in over a dozen cities to create greater transparency around surveillance technology use and to provide communities and their elected officials with the power to decide if and how such technologies are used by their local government and police.
