Digital Privacy Workshop for Activists

Digital Privacy Workshop for Activists
Bluestockings Bookstore (172 Allen Street, New York, NY), 3/27 at 7:00
FB EVENT: https://www.facebook.com/events/1066132743516402/

Governments and corporations use mass surveillance to discourage dissent and resistance. Many activists fear this will only worsen for Americans under Trump’s regime. This workshop aims to illuminate the wider political context of surveillance and some of the nuances of privacy and its ethos, teach the practice of threat modeling, and finally, offer some practical steps to using digital devices more safely for activists and community groups.

Workshop Topics:
– What is privacy? How do we normalize it in our day-to-day life?
– What is threat-modeling?
– Why should we prioritize free software?
– The praxis of safer digital privacy: what programs to use and how to use them (information on safer operating systems, safer browsing, safer communication, safer collaboration, phone security)
– How can we begin to move away from Facebook and Google?
– How can political and community groups begin to implement measures to have their work more digitally secure?

Bluestockings Bookstore is closest to the F, J, M, Z Delancey/Essex Street Station (non-accessible), the F 2nd Avenue Station (non-accessible), and the M15 bus (accessible). Bluestocking’s’ entrance is accessible, but bathroom is non-ADA compliant.

This is a free event and no prior knowledge is required. But Bluestockings will ask for donations to help keep one of the only feminist bookstores in the United States running.

If you questions about the workshop, please reach out to Melissa Marturano here or at melissa.marturano@protonmail.com.

The workshop will NOT be livestreamed.

Please help us to spread the word by inviting more people to the Facebook event and distributing the flyer/info to your networks!
