Now more than ever, digital tools sit at a precarious tipping point, and many question whether they will be used to address pre-existing disparities, or further entrench them. Specifically, the Internet and new networked technologies often increase the threat of mass surveillance and digital discrimination against communities of color, migrant and low-wage workers, and low-income families, amplifying problems of criminalization, deportation, poverty and overall insecurity. Data mining, location tracking, fusion centers and the brokering of sensitive financial profiles require a race forward analysis.

Join us for a conversation that stretches from intent to impact. Using contemporary examples from across the country, we’ll explore what digital rights and privacy safeguards are needed to ensure our nation’s most vulnerable communities are not placed at greater risk for violations of their civil and human rights.
