The Biden Administration’s Office of Science and Technology Policy released a Blueprint for a “Bill of Rights” to help guide the design, development, and deployment of artificial intelligence (AI) and other automated systems so that they protect the rights of the American public.
The new AI "Bill of Rights" framework builds on the Biden Administration’s work to hold big technology accountable, protect the #civilrights of Americans, and ensure technology is working for the American people. bit.ly/3fz6dmV #infosec
The Blueprint for an AI Bill of Rights lays out five core protections to which everyone in America should be entitled:
1) Safe and Effective Systems: You should be protected from unsafe or ineffective systems.

No joke, “Doc”—Chairman of the Muscogee County, Georgia, Republican Party—challenged 4,000 voters incl. the US military’s expert on Warfare of the Future. Like most of the quarter million Georgians challenged by these GOP operatives, he's African-American. gregpalast.com/a-103-seconds-…

#SNCC101: In McComb, MS, SNCC organizers were often subjected to brutal force, blatant racism, and various other forms of violence at the hands of police officers, white nationalists, and the local judicial systems.
Bob Moses was no stranger to these harsh conditions. He moved to McComb in 1961 after spending the summer as a field organizer throughout that region and discussing the potential for a mass voter registration with Amzie Moore, a prominent NAACP colleague.
He worked alongside a group of local adults, high school students, and youth who helped with canvassing and the voter registration campaign. On August 15, 1961, Moses and a group of hopeful registrants were pulled over by police after being denied the right to register. Image

Did You Know? Before Uber or Lyft, SNCC developed a system of shared rides for organizers in the South called the Sojourner Motor Fleet.
“When a Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee field secretary began work in Marshall County, Mississippi in the summer of 1962, he had to ride a mule from settlement to settlement.” The same was true in Wilcox County, Alabama in 1965.
SNCC workers needed to traverse rutted, dusty back roads and long stretches of highway to organize in the rural areas of the Deep South. Cars were so important that SNCC formed its own transportation company, the Sojourner Motor Fleet, Inc., to keep its staff mobile.

1/ History meets politics. Michelle Steel’s .@RepSteel vote against #RespectforMarriage means she does not know California or American history.

100 years ago, her marriage was illegal in her own California district. 🧵 #history #CivilRights
2/ California banned interracial marriage 1850-1948. In 1922, Congress passed the Cable Act, which removed citizenship of any U.S. *woman* who married "an alien ineligible for citizenship." They meant Asians. This targeted Asian immigrants who were barred from US citizenship.
I wrote about an illegal marriage in 1909 in what is currently is Steel’s congressional district, between a white woman and a Japanese American man. It’s connected to an endangered National Treasure historic place she's refused to help save.

Edmond Pettus was born #OTD in 1821 in Limestone County, Alabama. He served as an officer in the Confederate Army and as a US senator after the War. He was also active in the Ku Klux Klan, serving as its Grand Dragon in Alabama. He is the namesake of the Edmund Pettus Bridge.
Born into an enslaving family, Pettus built a successful law career before enlisting in the Confederate Army when war broke out. While most of his home region of northern Alabama did not support secession, Pettus did. He was a pro-slavery ideologue steered by white supremacy.
During the War he rose to the rank of Brig. General and was captured as a POW three times. He was pardoned by Andrew Johnson on October 30, 1865. Pettus returned to Selma after the War and resumed his law practice.

What was Mohandas #Gandhi doing carrying wounded #British soldiers off the battlefield in #SouthAfrica in 1899? Gandhi was merely leading by example, in the ambulance corps he set up to support the British against the Boers in the Second Boer War (1899-1902). 1/12
#war
But why would Gandhi support the British, especially since he had experienced the humiliation of racial discrimination in South Africa soon after he got there? It was #OnThisDay in 1893 that Gandhi was thrown off a train for refusing to comply with racial segregation laws. 2/12
This was more than a decade before Gandhi evolved his concept of #civildisobedience. He spent 21 years (1893 - 1914) in South Africa and went on to organize the #CivilRights movement, to raise the status of the indentured #Indian population there. 3/12

1/ #NorthCarolina Could Be Next in Joining Initiative to Restore Balance Between State and Federal Government theepochtimes.com/north-carolina… North Carolina could be joining the Convention of States using Article V of the United States Constitution. #NoConCon
2/ "In March 2021, the North Carolina House passed House Joint Resolution 233, which calls for the state to be added to the convention, now leaving it up to the Senate to follow the House’s lead." Image
1/ "Just seven states. That’s right, just SEVEN! If just 7 more states sign on, the #Kochs, the #Mercers, corporate funders, and their extremist allies will reach the 2/3 supermajority required to convene the convention they need to tear apart the U.S. Constitution"#NoConCon Image

Eternal reminder: Canadian "Conservatives" emulate their American counterparts exactly as much as they figure they can get away with. #cdnpoli
"All politicians are the same," they mooed lazily, chewing their collective cud in a field now openly ablaze. "There's no difference between political parties, *everybody* knows that!" /2 #cdnpoli
So how 'bout it, @PierrePoilievre? How *does* a woman's right to choose fit into your World's Freest Nation™️? How does it rate with your far right rage-baby #Freedumb cultists? I feel like I know the answer /3

Yesterday, the Supreme Court issued a ruling in #FBIvFazaga, a case brought by @cairGLA@ACLU_SoCal and @UCLA_CILP on behalf of 3 California Muslims who were secretly spied on by the FBI. Read this thread to learn more about the ruling & what comes next in our fight for justice. Image
Sheikh Yassir Fazaga, Ali Malik and Yasser AbdelRahim were targeted for surveillance by the #FBI - not because of any real suspicion of wrongdoing, but simply because they were Muslim. Last November, they brought their case against the FBI to the Supreme Court. Image
Yesterday, #SCOTUS ruled that they can continue pursuing their claims that the FBI spied on them solely because of their faith. Image

Last night, I was arrested for the first time in my life for going to a Brooklyn @BurgerKing with no vaxpass.

None of this would be happening without government force.

#resist #mandates #medicalfreedom #liberty #freedom #civilrights #NYPD #police #BurgerKing
I can't believe we're at a point in history in which we're arrested just for being in public without covering our faces or divulging our legally private medical information.

#resist #mandates #medicalfreedom #liberty #freedom #civilrights #NYPD #police #BurgerKing
Stand up for what's right, regardless of your vax status. We need more New Yorkers, Americans, and all other humans across the world to remember that we can't exist in perpetual fear. It's time to live again.
