On Friday, Just Futures Law, in concert with MijenteMediaJustice, and Immigrant Defense Project and organizers around the country, filed Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) and public record requests in order to ​demand more information on tech companies’ multi-million secret deal with the Trump Administration to build ​HHS Protect​ Now​, ​a new vast secretive data platform that has health records, hospital stays, and patient contacts.

Under COVID-19, governments and private companies are collecting vast amounts of personal information through new health surveillance tools like contact tracing apps, mobile location data, and temperature sensors. The Trump Administration has quietly granted ​companies like Palantir unprecedented access to personal data without limits, consent or accountability. ​We know little about how this information is being used, and most importantly, whether it is limited to fight COVID and protect our public health. This unlimited and unaccountable dragnet could be disastrous for communities of color. ​In Minnesota for example, the government is already ​repurposing contact tracing technology to track Black Lives Matter protesters.
