Surveillance on Marginalized Communities: Perspectives and Solidarity

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

This panel consists of female-identifying activists or members of marginalized communities who will share their perspectives on life as those targeted by surveillance or working with those who are.

The discussion will delve into each panelist's lived experiences as members of marginalized communities and personal experience with surveillance. We will also examine more detailed questions about various ways surveillance might affect each of these communities, and open the conversation to interaction between multiple panelists. 

Finally, we will explore ways that each community can provide solidarity to others, as well as what digital rights organizations can do to help stand up for these communities without speaking for them. There will be time for audience questions, or for those who may choose to share their own lived experiences.
