MetaData to Meta-Organizing

In this session, we will talk about the lived experience of local and domain-specific surveillance, like fusion centers, surveillance of poor people, and predatory targeting, and creative forms of resistance. We’ll also discuss disconnections between techies and communities historically most affected by tracking and data profiling in the United States, and opportunities for the future. The goal of this session is to broaden the current set of values framing conversations about surveillance and the PRISM Program to consider human rights violations and social injustices in the United States’ own backyards and main streets.
