ACLU: FBI Used Community Outreach To Collect Information On Muslims

Documents obtained by the ACLU show the FBI was collecting names emails, phone numbers, and physical descriptions of people they encountered at events in Northern California.

The FBI says some of these documents are from actual investigations and are not part of the community outreach program reporting. The documents are so heavily blacked out that it’s not immediately clear what they are.

The bureau’s community outreach program is designed to improve the public’s trust in the bureau. The FBI says it’s standard for agents to record basic information about people they met with at outreach events.
