STOP x RadTech: Facial Recognition in NYC

From the Organizers:

S.T.O.P. x RadTech present the next installment of our collaborative speaking series on surveillance technology use in NYC. This month we will focus on facial recognition tech: how it is being used by both law enforcement and private interests to surveil New Yorkers, and the efforts to curb its abuse. We will be joined by Atlantic Towers Tenant Association organizer Fabian Rogers and S.T.O.P. executive director Albert Fox Cahn.

Learn about the Atlantic Towers Tenant Association's successful organizing efforts to stop their landlord from installing facial recognition in their homes: https://www.fastcompany.com/90431686/our-landlord-wants-to-install-facial-recognition-in-our-homes-but-were-fighting-back
