Join us for a Zoom panel on how surveillance impacts racial justice and public safety in Piedmont and our broader community, organized by the Piedmont Anti-Racism and Diversity Committee (PADC) and the Piedmont Racial Equity Campaign (PREC) and co-sponsored by the League of Women Voters.

New surveillance technologies to monitor, track, and predict the actions of citizens are on the rise. Can they usher in a new era of unbiased  public safety? Or are they inherently problematic? Can they be used fairly and effectively, within the context of our often flawed public safety and justice systems?

Featured Speakers:

  • Jeremy Bowers, Chief of Piedmont Police Department
  • Matthew Guariglia, Policy Analyst, Electronic Frontier Foundation
  • Brian Hofer, Chair and Executive Director, Secure Justice
  • Jennifer Jones, Technology and Civil Liberties Fellow, ACLU of Northern California


January 28 | 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm
