CryptoHarlem Is Teaching Encryption to the Over-Policed and Heavily Surveilled

Every month for the past five years, Harlem residents have gathered to discuss digital privacy and how to best protect themselves from intrusive surveillance. Motherboard joined CryptoHarlem founder Matthew Mitchell at one of his crypto parties to see firsthand how he is empowering people of color, who he says are over-policed and heavily surveilled.

“You can’t buy a bag of chips in Harlem without being surveilled,” Mitchell said. CryptoHarlem has been teaching the community how to use encryption and other methods to prevent their digital activities from being surveilled and used against them. “People say this is the next frontier of civil rights,” Mitchell said.
