Digital Justice and Surveillance
February 22, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
This event was originally scheduled on 2/16 but was rescheduled due to power and Internet outages caused by the storm.
As you most likely know, the City of Portland passed two facial recognition bans last year: one banning use of the technology by public agencies, and a second ban prohibiting private use. Building upon that work, they’re now focusing on defining and implementing digital justice for residents and visitors to the City.
What is digital justice? Join us to find out!
Hector Dominguez, the Open Data Coordinator at Smart City PDX, within Portland’s Bureau of Planning and Sustainability, will be with us this month to explain what digital justice means and how the use of surveillance technologies can impact digital rights and the realization of justice. He’ll also talk about designing and implementing privacy impact assessments in the City.
Come learn about what’s going on in Portland and how you can get involved. Bring your questions and join the discussion. We hope to see you there!
Hector Dominguez is the Open Data Coordinator at the City of Portland. In 2009, Portland became the first city in the United States to adopt an Open Data Resolution to encourage the expansion of the technological community by promoting open data and partnerships between City government and the public, private and nonprofit sectors, academia, and labor.
