Riverwise Magazine: Detroiters want to be seen, not watched

Riverwise Magazine cover, featuring a white drone with a background of trees

This special issue of Riverwise Magazine is designed to provide a critical perspective on the controversy swirling around the Mayor’s plans to blanket an already highly surveilled city with more high definition cameras, including traffic lights and facial recognition technologies. Thanks to considerable grassroots organizing and researchers, the effort by city officials to quietly expand a surveillance program that endangers all Detroiters has been brought to light. Detroit Community Technology Project and Our Data Bodies were grateful to contribute to this edition.
