Fam, things are about to get real hard. Harder than they have ever been and we need to hold fast and be smart about how we organize over the next four years.
To protect ourselves we need to talk about digital security and how to practice digital self-defense during a time of unprecedented surveillance of our communities. This training is brought to you by Equality Labs, a South Asian Women’s Gender Non-Conforming, and Trans Tech Collective.
This is a security self-defense training for your digital movement:
* Secure your phone and computer.
* Secure your network access.
* Secure your data.
* Secure your communications.
Equality Labs is a South Asian American Human Rights Start-up working at the intersection of story, art, and security. They support movements dealing with intractable systems of oppression through a collaborative model that connects multiple disciplines and platforms to maximize the potential for change and engender workable, community driven solutions to the most pressing challenges we face. They are also the first South women, gender non-conforming, and trans technology collective whose leadership is from South Asian Cultural and Religious Minority communities. This includes Dalits, Adivasis, Muslims, Buddhists, and Christians.
This is a POC centered training but all are welcome. You will need to bring your own phone/laptop.
DEADLINE: Please RSVP by Monday, March 20th. If you have any questions please email Tracy Wong at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Fight Back is an ongoing series to address resistance against fascism, white supremacy, and educational tools to remain vigilant.
