Portland City Council will hold a work session on surveillance and digital justice on January 11, 2022 at 9:30 AM PST. Speakers at this meeting will inform City Council members about the impacts of surveillance technologies on local communities, describe how other cities have developed policies to regulate surveillance technology use, and discuss potential strategies for developing Portland’s own comprehensive surveillance policy.
The discussion will provide common language and perspectives-related to privacy, surveillance, digital justice. and digital rights—that can become the foundation for a more humane and robust approach to technology and information in the City of Portland.
