Digital Tools for Resistance

May 10 @ 6:30 pm-8:30 pm

Is it still possible to resist? Snowden warned that the surveillance state had outgrown its legal jurisdiction and ethical mandate. While the public demanded changes to internet policy, few fully grasped the new capacities of our government. Leak after leak illustrates the pervasiveness of spying and data collection on our everyday lives. Left with our devices, we passively accept that our phones and computers tether us to this social surveillance dragnet. But, what else can we do?

Join us for a workshop on Digital Tools for Resistance, where we will discuss with representatives from ACLU SoCal and the Electronic Frontier Foundation the paradoxes of online organizing and the possibilities of networked activism. We will also demonstrate how to install and use Signal, a free app that protects your privacy by encrypting your messages automatically.
