Dillon Reisman Educates on Dangers of Facial Recognition Technology

Dillon Reisman (’21), current Fellow with the ACLU of New Jersey, authored an article for the ACLU website outlining concerns over the growing use of facial recognition cameras in public spaces and urging New Jerseyans to oppose harmful surveillance technology (“What You Need to Know about the Use of Facial Recognition in New Jersey,” Feb. 24).  “It’s more important than ever that New Jerseyans push policymakers in their communities and the state to reign in facial recognition abuses, make the use of facial recognition transparent, and hold entities that use facial recognition accountable . . . . Together, we can fight against a surveillance infrastructure that stifles our ability to live free of bias and coercion while pulling resources away from things our community actually needs. We all deserve to have a say about how our future is being built, and transparency is the first step.”
