Join the Oakland Privacy Working Group to organize against Stingrays being acquired by law enforcement agencies, against Urban Shield, for various privacy ordinances to be passed by Alameda County and the Oakland City Council, against the Domain Awareness Center (DAC), Oakland’s citywide networked mass surveillance hub, and against other invasions of privacy by our benighted City, County, State and Federal Governments. We are also engaged in the fight against Predictive Policing and other "pre-crime" and "thought-crime" abominations.

OPWG was instrumental in stopping the DAC from becoming a city-wide spying network, and its members helped draft the Privacy Policy that puts further restrictions on the now Port-restricted DAC.

We were also the lead in having Alameda County pass the most comprehensive privacy and usage policy in the country for deployment of "Stingray" technology (cell phone interceptors).

Stop by and learn how you can help guard Oakland’s right not to be spied on by the government & if you are interested in joining the Oakland Privacy Working Group email listserv, send an email to:
