Facial recognition technology merits debated at Detroit police town hall

DJC’s resident Project Greenlight expert, Economic Equity attorney Eric Williams, spoke to Fox2 News yesterday before speaking at yesterday’s public hearing on expanding police surveillance. Eric will be working with the National Lawyer’s Guild and community activists to address some of the issues around the expansion of the controversial facial recognition technology in Detroit.

Last night’s meeting followed the release of a new report: “A Critical Summary of Detroit’s Project Green Light and its Greater Context” put together by The Detroit Digital Justice Coalition (DDJC) through its coalition member Detroit Community Technology Project (DCTP).
