Please join the ACLU of Illinois for our Virtual Town Hall: Privacy and Civil Liberties in a Time of Great Change on Tuesday, June 30th at 7:00 PM CDT to hear more about important privacy and civil liberties issues that have been amplified by the global health pandemic, protest movement, and increasing police use of technology.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, we’ve seen the continued expansion of technology and surveillance, often with few privacy protections. And now, we’ve seen tech used to monitor protests nationwide. Military-grade surveillance equipment has been deployed by police during protests now and in the past, even though this technology has repeatedly been shown to disproportionately misidentify Black and Brown people. These technologies destroy our rights to anonymity and privacy – and perpetuate the racism endemic in our criminal legal system.
We hope that you able to join us for this virtual conversation to learn more about these important issues.
