From the Organizers:
Learn about attending protests safely in the age of ubiquitous digital surveillance. Get answers to the following questions and more:
- Who is monitoring me at a protest and why?
- What risks should I consider when attending protests and how do I mitigate them?
- Do I leave my phone at home or bring my phone?
Let's begin to answer these questions together, led by Lucy Parsons Lab.
This event takes place in person. Masks are strongly encouraged in all Chicago Public Library locations.
Tuesday, October 25
4:00pm - 6:00pm CT
Harold Washington Library Center
