RadTech Activist Group (R-TAG @ Bluestockings)

March’s Event: Brian Hall from NYC Mesh will be talking about recent events with net neutrality and how it affects people around cable internet, some experiences and challenges with organizing a community network of any size for people who are interested in starting one, as well as a live demonstration what it would take to extend NYC Mesh into Bluestockings from the node across the street.

We’re building a community of tech activists at Bluestockings. Our workshops include building tech tools for grassroots movements (open to beginners and non-coders), and creating non-Capitalist arts projects and DIY tech. Discussing and organizing around algorithmic fairness, predictive policing, surveillance, and oppressive technologies. Getting grassroots organizations heard in City Council conversations about open data policies and automated decision systems (ADS).
