From the Organizers:
Facial Recognition threatens to automate and expand state violence. Join the Ban the Scan A2 Coalition for an online town hall and action planning workshop to learn more about facial recognition, and envision safety for our community beyond surveillance. One crucial step is to ban FR from being used by state and local governments.
