Join us for a community forum on surveillance sponsored by Sisters of the Road, Carceral Tech Resistance Network, Freedom to Thrive, the Oregon Justice Resource Center, and PDX Privacy!

The two-hour, hybrid event will take place at Grinds & Vines (3520 SE Yamhill) and online on March 14th, 2023, at 6pm, and will feature presentations from:

  • Sarah T. Hamid of Carceral Tech Resistance Network
  • Aje Amaechi of Freedom to Thrive
  • Amanda Lamb of Oregon Justice Resource Center
  • Chris Bushick of PDX Privacy

Panelists will discuss community concerns around the recent gunshot detection programs being considered by the city of Portland, including ShotSpotter, Eagl, Twenty20/Acoem, and Flock. They will discuss specific issues with these products and also review the larger, systemic concerns of racism, bias, and the harmful impacts of surveillance culture. The event will include a presentation from each and a chance to ask questions and have dialogue.

The event is free and open to the public, and city officials and staff have also been invited.
