Abolish the Stalker State: Stop LAPD Spying CoalitionFacilitator: Hamid Khan, organizer with the Stop LAPD Spying Coalition
Description: Governments and law enforcement agencies across the world are using algorithms, predictive analytics, risk assessment, facial recognition, drones, and other forms of carceral technologies to contain, control, and criminalize Black, Brown, Migrant, poor, and other minority populations. The Stop LAPD Spying Coalition has been organizing in Los Angeles against the rampant deployment of these tactics and technologies using an abolitionist framework. In our fight we have grounded police drones and shut down the predictive policing LASER and chronic offender bulletin program. In this workshop, attendees will learn about the work of the coalition and how community led grassroots efforts that embody abolition are fighting back to stop, dismantle, and abolish the Stalker State are progressing in Los Angeles.
