Staff from the ACLU-WA will provide skills-building training on topics including race equity and allyship, strategy and goal setting, power mapping, lawmaker engagement tactics, and a guide to the Washington legislative process.
Technology & Liberty Project Advocate, Jennifer Lee, will discuss how increasingly powerful surveillance tools have shifted the power dynamics between people and government, and how we are fighting back to create community-centric technology policy.
