The unchecked use of surveillance technologies by D.C. Police and other District agencies pose significant threats to the civil rights and civil liberties of all D.C. residents. Unchecked government surveillance contributes to an oppressive environment in which privacy rights are routinely violated and all residents are treated as prospective criminals.
The ACLU-DC, a member of the Community Oversight of Surveillance – D.C. (COS-DC) Coalition, invites you to a town hall discussion tomorrow, December 9 at 6 p.m. where experts in tech, law, and community impact will discuss the problem of unchecked surveillance and how District residents and leaders can work together to bring transparency and oversight to the D.C. government’s acquisition and use of surveillance technologies.
