What is Data Capitalism?

Data for Black Lives and Demos released a groundbreaking new report addressing data capitalism and offering solutions that build power for Black and brown communities. In the age of “big data” and surveillance, we need to be concerned about more than just personal privacy.

Take a look at how data capitalism worsens inequality throughout our economy, and how people are organizing to take back power.

Panelists discuss how the growing use of data extraction and algorithms shapes people’s experiences with workplace surveillance, consumer finance, media, and communications, policing, and the criminal legal system.
