About the CPC

Founded in the wake of the 2020 Black Lives Matter demonstrations, the Citizens Privacy Coalition of Santa Clara County (CPC) exists to watch the watchers and empower the people of Santa Clara County, California. We accomplish this using the following methods:


We probe city and county government offices through public records requests to determine techniques and funding behind surveillance efforts.


We assist government officials in the drafting and passing laws that promote oversight and transparency into surveillance tactics and spending.


We train activists, journalists, and the public — especially members of under represented communities — in anti-surveillance techniques.
