Abstract: Beyond the buildings, lakes, homes, and businesses in Minneapolis, are people. People who are impacted by technology used by government. Civic Tech enhances the relationship between people, their community and government by giving a voice in public decision-making processes.

Without public oversight of A.I. enabled technologies, communities face over policing, loss of data privacy protections and the consequences of human bias directing technology use to govern society. Diverse perspectives should be included in Civic Tech solutions to ensure proper representation and consideration for communities of color and vulnerable populations, those most negatively impacted.

This conversation will include the process and path taken throughout my Race & Tech Fellowship toward the adoption of public oversight of surveillance tech ordinances with the city of Minneapolis.
