The Electronic Frontier Foundation has launched its About Face campaign, intended to highlight the use of facial recognition by law enforcement and other government agencies.
Government use of face surveillance technology chills free speech, threatens residents’ privacy, and amplifies historical bias in our criminal system. From San Francisco, California to Somerville, Massachusetts communities are coming together to say “no” to this especially pernicious form of surveillance.
Join us in ending government use of face surveillance in our communities. Working with our partners in the Electronic Frontier Alliance, and other local grassroots organizations, each time a multiple of one-hundred supporters in your area sign-on, we’ll deliver the word to your local lawmakers. It’s time to correct the course and end government use of face surveillance.
The EFF has model legislation posted on its site to ban the use of facial recognition by police.
