Description

Bay Area activists of color and allies: Learn how to protect yourself from surveillance at a digital security training!

The vast system of U.S. surveillance is in the hands of a President who is violating our constitutional and human rights. As organizers, it's vital that we protect our digital security so we can continue to work for social change.

The Ella Baker Center for Human Rights and The Center for Media Justice - home of the Media Action Grassroots Network - in partnership with Wellstone Action and United We Dream, would like to invite activists and organizers to join us for a FREE digital security training to protect community activism and protest.

Our team of expert security practitioners are flying in from around the country to share the history and current reality of surveillance in a digital age and under the Trump Administration, and use interactive practices and learning-in-action to get your phone, computer, apps, and services secure.

When:

  • Saturday, January 27, 2018, 9am - 5pm

Where:

  • Oakland, CA (Exact location will be sent to you via email upon completion of pre-registration survey.)

What you will learn: Participants will learn surveillance self-defense -- including sustainable digital security practices to keep you and your personal or social movement networks safe from 21st century threats including

  • Direct police and government surveillance of activists

  • Indirect government surveillance using third-party developers

  • Spying by your Internet Service Provider (ISP)

  • Doxxing, exposure, and online harassment

*Please be sure to bring your mobile devices with you as you will be working to secure them throughout the day!

This training is grounded in cultural relevance, self-determination, relationships, and racial justice – and driven by art, community organizing, generative somatics and popular education.
