2022 • 10 months • Technology in the Public Interest

The Surveillance Technology Oversight Project (S.T.O.P.) litigates and advocates for privacy, working to abolish local governments' systems of mass surveillance. Its work highlights the discriminatory impact of surveillance on Muslim Americans, immigrants, the LGBTQ+ community, Indigenous peoples, and communities of color, particularly the unique trauma of anti-Black policing. The award supports a series of white papers that will address issues such as reproductive surveillance, in-home surveillance, gunshot surveillance, and immigration enforcement surveillance. The white papers will demystify complex systems, explore the harms of emerging surveillance technologies, and present policy recommendations for regulating or outlawing these systems.
