Just Futures Law and Mijente are excited to welcome the very first cohort of Take Back Tech Fellows! The Take Back Tech Fellowship (TBTF) program is aimed at energizing organizing and policy campaigns against intrusive technology surveillance programs that disproportionately impact Black and Brown people, including immigrant communities.
The 2020-2021 cohort - made up of activists, advocates, technologists, law students and academic clinics - is impressive. Immigration law professors from University of Washington (Jennifer Koh), Minnesota (Linus Chan), Boston University (Sarah Sherman-Stokes), Villanova (Caitlin Barry, Frances Kreimer, Tania Valdez), and University of Chicago (Nicole Hallett) are participating. Edyael Casaperalta, Colorado Law school alumna and my former research assistant for the Immigration and Citizenship law program, is also a fellow. Congratulations!
