The Eleventh HOPE (2016): "Only You Can Stop Police Surveillance - Here's How" (DVD)
Friday, July 22, 2016: 1:00 pm (Noether): As America debates policing reforms, police departments continue to rapidly acquire surveillance technology in secret, often with federal grant funds. Whether it’s Stingray cell surveillance devices or social media monitoring software, invasive tools are being deployed without democratic debate or safeguards to prevent racial profiling. But while this war against surveillance may seem like a losing one at times, advocates are winning key battles in cities across the U.S. Join civil liberties advocates and ACLU attorneys from New York, San Francisco, and Seattle for a discussion of how to increase transparency, frame the debate, and create meaningful policy reforms that protect civil liberties and civil rights.
