Act locally and secure your digital papers and effects

A lot of people are wondering what to do right now. The answers are the same as they were in October: organize and secure your digital papers and effects.

Now perhaps more than ever in recent memory, the action is at the state and local level. If you want to stop the national security state from using your local police as eyes and ears for a federal dragnet, take initiative to get this surveillance transparency and oversight ordinance passed at your local government. Before you start this organizing, take these critical steps to protect your digital security. Keep in mind that if you’re organizing on Facebook, the FBI may very well be keeping detailed notes as you do it.

What can you do? Act locally. And get secure.
