Put Away Your Tinfoil Hat: Security in Context

Are you an organizer or activist interested in protecting your data and communications from corporations and the government? At the upcoming AMC, the "Watch This! Surveillance, Security, and Organizing" track is about recognizing and growing the capacity within our movements to challenge the surveillance state. In this blogpost, the organizers of the Watch This! track outline a series of questions for thinking about security in a holistic manner—versus only thinking of it as a set of tools we use to keep movements safe.

Join us at the Allied Media Conference in Detroit to continue the conversation about safety and security in our movements!
