October 20, 2020 – October 29, 2020 EDT
In September, you may have seen re:power staff participate in the Hold the Line Roundtable, co-hosted by M+R, where we discussed ways to protect our democracy and prepare for a contested election. As groups nationwide are training people to mobilize and take to the streets post-election, we know that many people—whether due to health concerns, or their location—may be unable to participate in direct action, and will be looking for opportunities to engage online. re:power is offering a digital action and digital safety training series, to complement trainings on election defense and non-violent direct action.
WHO THIS IS FOR
You should attend these trainings if you want to:
- Understand the difference between safety & security
- Practice making your campaigns more secure across all devices, including computer and phone
- Become more confident in your ability to protect yourself and others from potential harm
This a 4-part training series, and each session is 45 minutes in length. To increase their accessibility, each training session will be repeated twice, and recordings will be shared afterwards. All trainings are free and open to the public.
While this is a training series, please register for each session individually.
