Calling all DC-area activists of color and allies! CMJ is teaming up with BYP100 – an organization of young Black activists and organizers creating change in the US – to bring you two free events: Power Not Paranoia and a Grassroots Digital Security Training.
Power Not Paranoia: Friday, May 18 | 7 – 9 pm
Join us at Power Not Paranoia: A Conversation on Surveillance and Race for an evening of dialogue on privacy, race, and government surveillance with special guests Khiara M. Bridges and Virginia Eubanks.
Together, we’ll learn about the impacts of surveillance on communities of color, and what we can do to protect ourselves and defend our rights.
DC Grassroots Digital Security Training: Saturday, May 19 | 9 am – 5 pm
Are you concerned about high-tech policing and surveillance by law enforcement? Learn how to protect yourself from police surveillance at our digital security training.
Our team of expert security practitioners from Wellstone Action and CMJ will fly in from across the country to share the history and current reality of surveillance under the Trump Administration, and use interactive practices and learning-in-action to get your phone, computer, apps, and services secure.
It’s vital that organizers protect their digital security so we can continue to work for social change. RSVP to save your spot at the training.
Both events will be held at the Center for Community Change, 1536 U Street NW, Washington, DC 20009.
