Nathan Freed Wessler, ACLU Speech, Privacy, and Technology Project


Monday, March 12, 2018 - 1:15 p.m.

At this event Nathan Freed Wessler, a staff attorney with the ACLU, discussed the ACLU's Project on Speech, Privacy, and Technology. The project is "dedicated to protecting and expanding the First Amendment freedoms of expression, association, and inquiry; expanding the right to privacy and increasing the control that individuals have over their personal information; and ensuring that civil liberties are enhanced rather than compromised by new advances in science and technology," and ACLU professionals are working on a variety of issues in this subject. Wessler focused on litigation and advocacy around surveillance and privacy issues, including government searches of electronic devices, requests for sensitive data held by third parties, and use of surveillance technologies.
