...with the Police Practices Policy Director, Mark Schlosberg. Federal, state and local agencies have infiltrated or monitored the political activity of Californians throughout Central and Northern California in what has become a disturbing trend, according to an ACLU-NC report released in July.

From the stories of grandmothers opposing the war in Iraq to anti-war protestors at the Port of Oakland, “The State of Surveillance: Government Monitoring of Political Activity in Northern and Central California" tells the compelling stories of individuals and groups that were targets of government surveillance because of their political activity.

Mark Schlosberg has served for the last five years as Police Practices Policy Director for the ACLU of Northern California. In this capacity, he has worked on a variety of policing issues including racial profiling, accountability systems, surveillance, crowd management, and use of force. He was on the legal team that reached a landmark racial profiling settlement agreement with the California Highway Patrol, managed the successful 2003 ballot campaign to strengthen the San Francisco oversight system, and has authored several reports on policing issues, most recently The State of Surveillance: Government Monitoring of Political Activity in Northern and Central California.

Prior to working at the ACLU of Northern California, Schlosberg worked as a deputy public defender at the Contra Costa Public Defender Office and was Vice Chair of the Berkeley Police Review Commission. Schlosberg received his law degree from New York University School of Law.

There will be time for questions and discussion with the audience after Mr. Schlosberg’s talk.
