The Science, Technology, and Public Policy program (STPP) is honored to discuss technology, surveillance and civil liberties with Kade Crockford, the director of the Technology for Liberty Program at the ACLU of Massachusetts.

Kade works on issues at the intersection of technology and civil rights and civil liberties, focusing on how systems of surveillance and control impact not just the society in general but their primary targets—people of color, Muslims, immigrants, and dissidents. Recently, Kade led the ACLU of Massachusetts’ "Press Pause on Face Surveillance" campaign, which has thus far won the passage of a state law regulating police use of facial recognition, and eight municipal bans on government use of face surveillance technology, including in Massachusetts’ four largest cities.

Co-sponsors: Center for Ethics, Society, and Computing (ESC); Civil Rights Litigation Clearinghouse; Arab and Muslim American Studies; and Science, Technology & Society program.
