As funders aiming to secure safety, self-determination, and freedom for all, the rising threat of surveillance cannot be ignored. The practice is more widespread than ever, and continues to harm communities at the margins, as well as those fighting for justice and liberation. On November 30, 2022, Borealis Philanthropy’s Spark Justice Fund held a teach-in for philanthropy to hear from frontline organizers and activists representing Eye on Surveillance, Mijente, and Surveillance Technology Oversight Project (S.T.O.P.) on various grassroots efforts to combat both mass surveillance and incarceration.

This toolkit provides an overview of learnings from this event and additional resources to help guide funders in their learning journey about the many intersections of surveillance with justice-oriented work.
