The Future of Data Justice: Community Power and Data-Driven Systems

March 28, 2019; 10 – 11:15 AM
The Auditorium at 66 West 12th St, New York, NY


Please join us Thursday, March 28 at The New School to celebrate the release of Our Data Bodies’ Digital Defense Playbook: Community Power Tools for Reclaiming Data.

What unique challenges do members of marginalized communities face when dealing with data-driven systems? What strategies and solutions safeguard them against pervasive forms of surveillance?

Based in Charlotte’s, Detroit’s, and Los Angeles’ most marginalized urban neighborhoods, Our Data Bodies (ODB) has been in the field since 2015, consulting with community members about their experiences with data collection and data-driven systems. Its newly released Playbook: speaks to the future of data justice.

To celebrate ODB and this work, this public panel hosted by the Digital Equity Laboratory — based at the Milano School of Public Policy at The New School — will discuss inequality, privacy, surveillance, and data profiling; data justice research; community safety and health.
