Defending Rights & Dissent Backs Bill to Rein In Foreign Intelligence Surveillance

Defending Rights & Democracy, along with over 40 other civil liberties groups nationwide, has signed on to a national letter calling on school administrations in the US to commit to not using facial recognition technology (for non-personal reasons, e.g. when used to unlock personal phones) in our schools. This invasive and biased technology inherently violates the liberty & the rights of students and faculty, and has no place in our educational institutions.
