Resource Guide: Shot on Camera, Documenting the Police

On September 22, the Media Action Grassroots Network (MAG-Net) hosted a Media Justice Salon, SHOT ON CAMERA: Documenting the Police. While the police are being equipped with body- worn cameras to record the public, the public’s right to record the police is being contested. During the Salon, Nicole Carty from SumOfUs, Priscila Neru from Witness, and Harlan Yu from Upturn engaged with MAG-Net members to explore how the unequal rights of police and community to record have implications for free speech, community organizing, and community safety. Together, we learned how video documentation is changing the way we organize, the way we are policed, and the way our stories are being heard on corporate-owned social media platforms life Facebook and Twitter. Here is a list of resources that came out of the conversation.
