We are happy to say we made significant gains in 2017. We achieved the most exciting impact around our training series. We completed two Roadmap Consulting six week cohorts for movement digital security staff from thirty-two organizations, with digital security trainer Iliea Burgos. We also finished a series of trainings with Harlo Holmes of Freedom of the Press Foundation for nearly a dozen member organizations of the Center for Media Justice. We led a digital security series with Social Movement Technologies and wrote a section of the nationally distributed digital security planning material for Roadmap’s “Weathering the Storms: Toolkit”. We also worked with Roadmap on intensive digital security webinars with PICO, Family Values at Work, National Day Labor Organizing Network, (NDLON), and MASA.
“Every session was relevant and well facilitated. Especially the clear action steps, the great context and the specific examples of digital security’s importance. It was great and very much worth my time.”
– Mike Thorp, New Era Colorado, Roadmap/ConComms Cohort .
In our work to support attorney ethics we had our legal ethics trainings distributed nationally by The National Academy of Continuing Legal Education and conducted three ethics and rights trainings for attorneys at the NY County Bar Association (NYCLA). We also completed a six month organizational digital security planning and implementation process with Palestine Legal. In total, our cybersecurity trainings this year reached more then one thousand people, including over one hundred attorneys.
“Constitutional Communications helped Palestine Legal tremendously. They are extremely knowledgeable about mass surveillance and recommended concrete steps we could take to protect our digital information and communications from different threat actors. They understand why this is particularly important for organizations that support and defend Palestinian human rights.”
