Digital Justice | IN PROTEST: Washington, D.C.
From the frontlines of resistance, a constellation of Black voices challenges systemic American racism in a new four-volume virtual reality series entitled IN PROTEST: Grassroots Stories from the Front Lines. Each Volume chronicles a different American city, profiling modern activists as they move beyond street protests to confront inequality and injustice in everyday life. These gripping, first-person stories speak to the urgency of the current uprising to inspire a new generation of defiance.
Without close vigilance and public guidance, the application of technology can be harmful, especially for vulnerable populations, like Black and Indigenous communities. At the intersection of technology and civil rights, Elizabeth Adams (Twitter: @technologyliz) helps embed racial equity into public policy. Elizabeth explains the dangers of harmful technology, such as racial bias inherent facial recognition, and the urgency for policymakers in Washington, D.C. to protect our fragile data rights.
