Ask your public library to purchase a copy of this important new book by Virginia Eubanks ( https://twitter.com/PopTechWorks)
https://tinyurl.com/y8vqs5f6 On NPR today... https://www.npr.org/sections/alltechconsidered/2018/02/19/586387119/automating-inequality-algorithms-in-public-services-often-fail-the-most-vulnerab The Atlantic https://www.theatlantic.com/business/archive/2018/02/virginia-eubanks-automating-inequality/553460/ Your public library may ask for reviews of this book before they order it. You can cite the links to the NPR and Atlantic pieces. I recommend making the book purchase request online so that you can copy and paste these links. Making the request on a hardcopy postcard makes it difficult to cite the links. Talk about this book with friends, neighbors, teachers, librarians, social workers, and heath care workers you know. There's a role for each of us.
