On Sunday, April 10, EFF will co-host a free workshop on surveillance self-defense with local grassroots groups in the nation's capital. The workshop will be open to the public, though particularly structured for activists supporting social movements.
Participants need not wield technical expertise to attend this session, which is geared towards regular smartphone and laptop users. EFF's Shahid Buttar will facilitate a teach-in and skill-share on surveillance, some immediate and practical steps you can take to protect your communications, and how to work with neighbors to inform surveillance policy at the state and local level. An EFF staff technologist will remotely join for a question & answer session.
Co-sponsoring organizations include the Georgetown chapter of the National Lawyers Guild and the Black Movement Law Project.
Join us at Georgetown University Law Center's Eric E. Hotung International Law Building (600 New Jersey Ave., NW, near Union Station) in room 2000 to learn more about surveillance, how to protect your privacy and information security, and how you can help build the movement for digital rights wherever you live.
There is no cost to attend, but please register to help us plan accordingly: https://eff.org/04-10-16-DC
