Keep Me Posted is a podcast about the intersection of race, rights, democracy and justice in the digital age.
As the use of surveillance technologies continues to rise, our day-to-day lives continue to be affected, from education to employment, web searches to doorbells. Countless studies have shown that surveillance technologies are inherently biased and discriminatory, and that's especially true for people with disabilities.
This week's guest, Azza Altiraifi, is a disabled organizer and researcher, and Senior Program Manager at a progressive economic messaging organization. Previously, Azza was a research and advocacy manager at the Center for American Progress's disability policy initiative, where she spearheaded advocacy campaigns, as well as researched and published articles on mental health policy, surveillance and advancing economic security for disabled people.
