A conversation followed by a digital security workshop
Join digital security pros from Freedom of the Press and revolutionaries from the Middle East for a discussion and workshop on how to communicate for social change under repressive conditions. To prepare for life under Trump, we'll have to do more than download Signal and learn PGP. We'll have to learn how to scheme in the shadows, pass notes, and encrypt our offline communications as securely as we do our emails.

***Panel will be followed by a Cryptoparty. BRING YOUR LAPTOP!***

Panelists will include:
Harlo Holmes, Director of Newsroom Digital Security at the Freedom of the Press Foundation
Olivia Martin, Digital Security Intern at the Freedom of the Press Foundation
Ahmed El-Hady, neuroscientist at Princeton University and Egyptian revolutionary
Loubna Mrie, journalism student at New York University and Syrian revolutionary

***Panel will be followed by a Cryptoparty. BRING YOUR LAPTOP!***

Facilitators from Freedom of the Press will lead a workshop on basic digital encryption and security following the panel discussion. This will include lessons on basic threat modeling, secure browsing, and various forms of encryption.
