Congress: Stop Face Surveillance Technologies

We must divest funding from invasive and racially-biased surveillance.

Face recognition and other surveillance threaten everyone's privacy rights, but most especially, it puts our civil liberties at risk – and the harm is not experienced equally. If government agencies like police departments and the FBI continue to deploy these invasive technologies in our communities, they will unquestionably be used to target Black people and all people of color.

Congress needs to act and it can start by pushing legislation that halts the use of facial recognition by law enforcement, divests from other surveillance technologies at the federal level – and denies funding for the technologies to state and local law enforcement.

Your Message
Stop face recognition and other surveillance technologies

As your constituent, I'm calling on you to take action to stop police and federal law enforcement agencies from using invasive face recognition and other surveillance technologies against our communities. You can do this by pushing legislation that halts the use of facial recognition and divests from other discriminatory technologies now.

Face recognition and other surveillance technologies are a threat to our privacy rights and fuel racist policing practices. This cannot wait. Please act now to stop their harmful use today.

Sincerely,
