IT’S NOT JUST THE NSA: Big Brother, Little Brother and the Private Spies Who are Destroying Your Privacy with Kade Crockford Director, Technology for Liberty Initiative, ACLU of MA

Tuesday, January 14, 2014 Snow Date Wednesday January 22 7:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.

Temple B’naiBrith 201 Central Street, Somerville
Thanks to Edward Snowden, our country is having its first real debate about the vast and growing surveillance state erected in the shadows of 9/11. But it isn't just the NSA. Increasingly, our state and local police departments are also collecting enormous amounts of data about every single one of us: where we go, what we buy, who we talk to and when, how we use the internet -- often without warrants or any judicial oversight. And anytime you follow the money -- whether at the state and local or federal level -- you'll find thousands of increasingly powerful if largely unknown corporations that are profiting off of our information. Can democracy survive in a surveillance society? If not, what can we do about it?

Kade Crockford, director of the Technology for Liberty initiative at the ACLU of Massachusetts will address these issues and tell you how you can get involved to stop warrantless surveillance in the Commonwealth and nationwide.

Kade blogs at privacysos.org/blog and has written for The Nation, The Guardian, TruthOut, and the Boston Globe.

For further information please call Ruby Poltorak (617) 969-9389 or Ellen Stone (617) 776-2829 For directions, call the Temple at (617) 625-0333 or visit www.templebnaibrith.org

We regret that Temple B'nai Brith is not yet wheelchair accessible.
