Come and be a part of our campaign to pass surveillance oversight ordinances in Massachusetts cities and towns!
On Thursday, June 15 at 6pm, local activists and city officials will be talking about ordinances to roll back the surveillance state. The ordinances would require local police to go through an open, democratic approval process before purchasing new surveillance equipment, and require the cops to report to elected officials about how they use surveillance technologies. Basic accountability at the local level is a critical step towards defending and expanding democracy in Cambridge, Somerville, and beyond.
At the event you’ll learn more about why we need the ordinance, the process at the local government level, and how you can get involved.
The event is co-sponsored by the ACLU of Massachusetts.
