Tell Lawmakers: End Facial Policing

Porcha Woodruff was eight months pregnant when police showed up at her house to arrest her for robbery and carjacking, after facial recognition matched her picture with footage from the scene. She was detained for 11 hours, suffered panic attacks in the cell, and had to make a $100,000 personal bond before being released.

A month later the charges were dropped because the facial recognition match was false, and Porcha Woodruff was innocent.

This is the sixth known case of a Black person being wrongfully arrested due to facial recognition.

This crisis will only get worse unless lawmakers do something about it. Tell your members of Congress to pass the Facial Recognition and Biometric Technology Moratorium Act now!
