Salt Lake City Public Library, UT

Stephanie (she/her) I am a Teen Services Librarian in Salt Lake City, where I work primarily with low-income and LGBTQ+ teens and help run the annual Alt Press Fest. One of my goals is to help teens make informed decisions about their digital privacy. I am also interested in exploring how mass surveillance impacts marginalized communities and activists. My interest in privacy comes from my involvement in the animal rights and LGBTQ+ communities in Utah, a state that has had a tumultuous history with both groups.
