Description

 In the surveillance age, how can we make privacy mainstream? Library Freedom Project is an initiative that brings privacy advocacy and education to the public through the trusted space of the library. LFP trains librarians on understanding broad surveillance issues, from facial recognition software to Cambridge Analytica, and teaches strategies and tools to help our communities fight back. Focusing on themes like surveillance capitalism, harm reduction, and grassroots advocacy, LFP is building a national network of Privacy Advocates in our local libraries. Join LFP director Alison Macrina to hear more about Library Freedom Project and the community of librarians fighting for privacy.

Alison Macrina is director of Library Freedom Project and a core contributor to The Tor Project. Her work focuses on building collective power to fight the current and future technological dystopia.
