Political Education: Hyper-surveillance in Detroit

Date: 
Tue, Jul 16, 2019 - 6:00pm to 8:00pm

City:

Lack of affordable housing, contaminated water in our schools, unreliable public transportation, lack of access to HIV/AIDS medications, mental health facilities closings and lack of stable jobs. These are a few of many resources Detroiters are denied, because Duggan and Detroit city government has determined that a large portion of our budget should go towards hyper surveillance, facial recognition technology and over-policing in our neighborhoods in effort to stop crime.

Surveillance: Know Your Rights & Community Discussion

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

City:

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.
