The Oakland Public Safety Committee will be considering a Facial Recognition ban on Tuesday evening. Please show up to the meeting and urge the Committee to support a complete ban on Facial Recognition Technology.
Face recognition technology runs the risk of making Oakland residents less safe as the misidentification of individuals could lead to the misuse of force, false incarceration, and minority-based persecution.
The City of Oakland should reject the use of this flawed
technology that infringes on our right to privacy.
If unable to attend, please write to the Public Safety Committee to urge them to vote in favor of a complete Facial Recognition Ban without an exigent use loophole.
