Surveillance Technology Oversight Project (S.T.O.P.)
The Surveillance Technology Oversight Project (S.T.O.P.) is a 501(C)(3), non-profit advocacy organization and legal services provider. S.T.O.P. is hosted by the Urban Justice Center as one of just five organizations selected for UJC’s 2019-2020 Social Justice Accelerator. S.T.O.P. litigates and advocates for privacy, working to abolish local governments’ systems of mass surveillance. Our work highlights the discriminatory impact of surveillance on Muslim Americans, immigrants, the LGBTQ+ community, indigenous peoples, and communities of color, particularly the unique trauma of anti-Black policing. S.T.O.P. fights to ensure that technological advancements don’t come at the expense of age-old rights.
