As we continue to build our capacity to resist and challenge the corporate state, it is vital that we know how to protect ourselves and each other against the intensifying state repression under the current administration. We invite you to join the Civil Liberties Defense Center for an intensive training structured to build our collective knowledge and skills to increase the security of individuals and political organizing groups. This training will include a Know Your Rights session and cover security culture, the various ways we are facing state repression (Grand Juries, SLAPP Suits, RICO) and how to effectively combat it.
This training is designed to offer an introduction to security for people who are completely new to organizing, as well as provide development and reminders for those who have been organizing for awhile.
