Digital Security in the Age of Trump
Description: In this political climate, it is important that we equip ourselves with tools to protect our communities and all the important work we do. For Black, Arab, Muslim, Indigenous, Asian, South Asian, LGBTQ folks of color who are currently targeted by the State, digital security is an urgent issue we must organize ourselves around. In this personalized digital security workshop designed by grassroots organizers on the ground, you will learn to protect your privacy and rights in the digital world. We will cover how to secure you phone and computer, share tools to protect your network access, and how to use encryption tools to preserve your data and communications. Everyone must bring their chargers, laptops and cellphones to secure their devices.
Equality Labs is a South Asian American human rights start-up working at the intersection of story, art, and security. We support movements dealing with intractable systems of oppression through a collaborative model that connects multiple disciplines and platforms to maximize potential for change and engender workable, community driven solutions to the most pressing challenges we face. We are also the first South Asian 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.
