Join us for a virtual conversation on Wednesday, October 26 at 6pm between Murad Awawdeh, Executive Director of the NYIC, and Albert Fox Cahn, Esq., Executive Director of S.T.O.P., on the 21st anniversary of the PATRIOT Act.

In the aftermath of 9/11, institutionalized Islamophobia and xenophobia led to the rise of surveillance technology and signalled a backsliding of civil rights for minority communities. On the 21st anniversary of the PATRIOT Act, this conversation will explore how surveillance has been weaponized against immigrant communities in the name of national security and beyond.
