Surveillance: Know Your Rights & Community Discussion

Tue, Aug 28, 2018 - 7:00pm to 9:00pm


Among the top issues of concern for the Arab and Muslim communities is surveillance, the idea that our communities are constantly being watched and monitored. Since 9/11, the surveillance of Muslim communities has led to the disentigration of community trust, the repression of political activism and organizing, the chilling of freedom of speech and religion, and the alteration of community relationships.

Surveillance is not a new issue, and communities of color have been experiencing it since long before 9/11. This presentation by Professor Khaled Beydoun will break down the recent surveillance program called Countering Violent Extremism (CVE), in order to educate community members about its dangers and how to resist it.

This event will also be a safe space for community members to share their own experiences and concerns about surveillance.
