Hello everyone! I came across this free online learning opportunity today and thought of the legal empowerment network. Digital security is so important, for everyone but especially for community organizers. If you attend, please report back on what you learn!
In this non-technical workshop, we explore how tools like peer support and care pod mapping put collective digital security within reach by grounding our technical practices in community care.
Digital and Information security impact our livelihoods and physical safety as well as our mental health and ability to organize our communities. The majority of existing digital security resources focus on how we, as individuals, can use tools to secure our personal data, apps, devices, and more. As a result, these resources don’t always fully address all the dimensions of safety in movement work. Additionally, the sheer amount of information out there can be overwhelming and is often outdated.
How can we better equip ourselves to make the most of digital security resources and trainings?
During this workshop we will apply lessons from holistic security and healing justice to elevate our digital security practices by grounding them in community care. Safety is a collective endeavor and through the application of tools such as peer support and care pod mapping, digital security can be more easily accessed.
Following this workshop we will also share a curation of community care and digital security resources through which you can begin applying the tools and practices we will have co-created during this workshop.
Note: A feedback session will be held exactly one week after this workshop. We ask that attendees of this workshop also attend the feedback session to help us shape the future of this workshop.
