Technology Policy Priorities for Black Communities

How do we ensure technology policies serve Black communities?
Black communities confront an emerging set of tech policy issues, such as discriminatory ad targeting, online disinformation and hate that prompts real life harms such as voter suppression and violence, the misuse of data in employment and lending, and lack of access to broadband. This panel will explore potential tech policy solutions.
