Wednesday: Cambridge surveillance transparency ordinance needs your help

This Wednesday, the 18th, starting at 6:30pm, the Cambridge Public Safety Committee will hold a hearing on a local ordinance to require a transparent and democratic process before police can purchase new surveillance equipment. Community input and transparency are critical to ensure new technologies don’t get out ahead of our constitutional rights.

Join us, Digital Fourth and the ACLU on Wednesday, October 18 at Cambridge City Hall at 6:30pm for the Public Safety Committee Hearing, to learn about the ordinance and raise your voice in support of these commonsense protections. Digital Fourth setup a Facebook event.

It is important that Cambridge residents speak in favor of this ordinance, so if you plan to speak, please email us so we can make sure you get added to any speaker list the city has.
