The advance of technology presents both opportunities for and challenges to liberty. As new technologies are implemented, their impacts on civil liberties must be given consideration. The ACLU supports uses of technology that enhance privacy and freedom while opposing those that undermine liberty and move us closer to a surveillance society. We advance this goal by building support from diverse allies and the public; elevating the voices of historically over-impacted communities in the tech space; advocating with lawmakers and policymakers for innovative and binding frameworks; pressuring and working with corporations to move them towards self-policing; generating targeted reports and research; and conducting strategic litigation.
