With great honor, Aspiration gets to join Jack and Jamila from Palante Technology Cooperative for a session on “PGP Encryption for Our Movements” at the Allied Media Conference in Detroit on June 19-22, 2014. The AMC is a “collaborative labratory” where activists, techies, artists, and educators create and share transformative media. We always have a great time!x6dck5gjx70ybdbpbustjci5tou6j3m7

To start, we’re making a resource list to provide additional places where folks can learn about email encryption. Below are lots of links for further reading to help demystify the world of PGP (Pretty Good Privacy), and the tools you need to get started. We’ll post more on session take aways after the conference.kxrch8fks51s5hi026x9l6lo7j5n5sbg

AMC Session: “PGP Encryption for Our Movements”8wxx08kfwm2fbxyx94o3b4gvvmb5s2yq

Description: In the face of rampant surveillance by powerful forces, how can we protect ourselves while communicating online? OpenPGP is open source software lets users encrypt data and verify the source of an email or file. In this workshop we’ll cover the basics of what activists and organizers need to know about OpenPGP: what it’s for, how it’s used, and the benefits it offers to our movements. 2fj8dk074hyedi4bi7f2ps2p2a7hzmlrParticipants will leave with an understanding of how they can use encryption for increased privacy and security in their day-to-day work and next steps for starting to use OpenPGP themselves.6qf5ue7dlm8fs4vk5we3gqd7on7juu7q
