The Portland TA3M, a local organization in the Electronic Frontier Alliance, (not EFF) will host this event:

From the Organizers:

*** Please note that this meeting is on the 3rd TUESDAY this month because of the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday on Monday! Doors open at 6:00 PM and will be monitored for access until 6:20 PM ***

Smart City PDX is preparing two separate ordinances — one for public agencies and another for private entities — and both are tentatively scheduled for City Council hearings this spring. You can view a draft of the public version at https://www.dropbox.com/s/z989uxauygd0svr/Facial%20Recognition%20Ordinance%20City%20use%20%20-%20first%20public%20draft%20-%20November%208%202019.pdf

Hector Dominguez, the Open Data Coordinator at Smart City PDX, within Portland's Bureau of Planning and Sustainability, is working with other city officials to develop the proposed facial recognition ban legislation. At the meeting, he’ll share with us the details of what's currently in the ordinance drafts and will also explain how these rules, if passed, will work.

Bring your questions and join the discussion! We'll have snacks, and there will be an opportunity for networking afterwards. We hope to see you there!
