Don’t Call Me Resilient

Being Watched: How surveillance amplifies racist policing and threatens the right to protest

Episode Notes

Many of us know our personal data is being collected online and used against us – to get us to buy certain things or vote a certain way.  But for marginalized communities, the collection of data and photos has much bigger implications. Vinita is joined by two researchers who are calling for new protections for the most vulnerable populations. Yuan Stevens is the Policy Lead in the Technology, Cybersecurity and Democracy Programme at the Ryerson Leadership Lab and Wendy Hui Kyong Chun is professor and Canada 150 Research Chair in new media at Simon Fraser University.
