EPIC, Coalition Issue Declaration on Harms of Social Media Surveillance

EPIC joined over 50 organizations in a declaration on the harms of social media surveillance by law enforcement. The groups said that social media surveillance is "often covert and conducted without oversight" and allows law enforcement "to monitor and archive information on millions of people's activities."

In an op-ed last year, EPIC Senior Counsel, Jeramie Scott, explained how private industry fuels social media monitoring, creating huge databases of personal data that is sold to law enforcement.
