Quick reminder that today is the State & Local Facial Recognition Tech Moratorium (S.1385 & H.1538) hearing before the Joint Committee on the Judiciary. That hearing will start at 1pm, and will be in Room A-1 at the State House, 24 Beacon Street, Boston.

It is vital to have as many Pirates attend the hearing as possible. Even if you choose not to testify in person, your presence there will demonstrate to the committee that we need a facial recognition tech moratorium. The ACLU will have “Press Pause” t-shirts for all supporters of the bills and would appreciate it if you told them you plan to attend.

The state house is a short walk from the Park St. Green/Red line MBTA stop. You should arrive 20-30 minutes before the planned beginning of the hearing.  It may take a bit of time to get through security and the metal detectors, so plan accordingly and travel light. If you plan to attend the whole hearing, you might want to bring a water bottle.   

To find out more about testifying or submitting written testimony, please view our earlier blog post on this hearing.

Thanks!
