Are we losing control of our digital privacy? While surveillance and information technologies have developed rapidly, privacy laws have not kept pace. City of Seattle leaders are pursuing a new privacy initiative that could impact everything from 9-1-1 calls to utility bills to recordings from police-worn body cameras. Host Brian Callanan moderates a live, televised community forum at Town Hall with privacy advocates, government, public-safety and technology leaders. Bring your questions, concerns, and comments!

The Emmy-award winning Seattle Speaks series is presented in partnership with Seattle CityClub and Town Hall.
