The Surveillance Technology Oversight Project (S.T.O.P.)

S.T.O.P. litigates and advocates for privacy, working to abolish local governments’ systems of mass surveillance. Our work highlights the discriminatory impact of surveillance on Muslim Americans, immigrants, the LGBTQ+ community, indigenous peoples, and communities of color, particularly the unique trauma of anti-Black policing.

In early 2019, Exposing.ai (previously MegaPixels.cc) and S.T.O.P. independently began work on a simple idea: a way to find when our images are used to train facial recognition. Recognizing that we can help more victims of biometric data scraping together than we can on our own, we proudly partner with Adam to bring this project to life. S.T.O.P. would like to also thank John Dickerson, Vedant Nanda, Paul O’Connor, Cameron Wilkin, John Best, Arkadiy Kukarkin, and Amanda Hummel for generously volunteering their time to this work.
