As state surveillance becomes increasingly entrenched in community activism, it is paramount that we teach ourselves to stay safe while we mobilize our movements.

This training is focused on framing surveillance and security cyultye at large by learning explicit skills to imporve our digital hygiene. Are you interested in learning how to better secure your emails from unwanted Looky Lous, such as police, state, and corporate entities? Would you like know how organize meetings/actions/parties without worrying that someone's listening in? Do you feel super paranoid about even sending texts, wondering if their content will be read by someone other than the recipient?

Please join us on July 28th at 7 PM @ Bluestockings Bookstore for a workshop in which we help answer these questions, and discuss theimportance of digital security culture for activists. All levels of skill and interest are welcome.
