Incidents of surveillance, video stings, office break ins, rollbacks of our recent wins, and doxxing - the publishing of personal information against social justice leaders, are on the rise.

  • free tools you can use to increase your communications privacy and security.

Grassroots social justice movements against the Trump administration have built an unparalleled upsurge in national protest and political engagement. However, as the 2016 US election campaign shows; if civil society organizations do not have solid digital security practices they may be undermined by opposition attack. From Wikileaks leaking the DNC’s and Podesta’s detailed campaign planning information, to James O’Keefe attempting hacking and video stings on key progressive organizations, the importance of digital security and data control and were crucial areas of growth and learning for the election organizers, many of whom are now leading the resistance to the Trump administration.

 

RoadMap's Weathering the Storms: Building Social Justice Resilience to Opposition Attacks program provides training, resources, and ongoing consulting support for social justice organizations to help them prepare for and protect against opposition attacks.
