The Next Fight: Combating the Ever-Rising Surveillance State

Session Type(s): Panel

Surveillance technologies are growing and expanding their reach in both the private and public sectors. Despite moves toward ending mass incarceration and its harms, the systems of criminalization are evolving with the power of technology. This panel will bring organizers from different movements and communities together to talk about the growing impact of these technologies, the different sectors they effect, organizing and corporate campaign strategies to combat them for current and future fights, and the role of corporate power in how these technologies are distributed.
