PeoplesHub Workshop – Connect online as an individual

Defend Our Movements in the Time of COVID-19:

Review and Transform: Digital Safety Review, Collective Care Online and Thinking Spatially and Socially


We’ll begin this workshop with a role playing activity to assess our own digital safety practices, make a to-do list for ourselves, and review the basics around taking care of our accounts and our devices.

We will review our account management, including passwords, password managers, two-factor authentication (2 step verification); taking care of our devices including encryption, cameras, antivirus, updates, biometrics, and location.

We’ll talk about how collective care, thinking spatially, and socially about the internet can help us use the internet more safely and be a part of making transformative spaces online.

Bex Hong Hurwitz

Bex Hong Hurwitz, founder of Tiny Gigantic, is an enthusiastic breaker and maker of technology for social justice. They see holistic security as one of many super powers social justice movements have to care for each other, be more sustainable and stand stronger against injustice. To them, digital security and safety issues are directly connected to ways that we can better design, use, and regulate technologies for social justice. Bex is part of queer and Korean Adoptee movements in the U.S. and they find inspiration and wisdom in working alongside others with the deep understanding that our liberation is linked. Prior to Tiny Gigantic, they co-founded Research Action Design research and design justice cooperative. They hold a BS from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (2003) and an MA from University of California Berkeley in Information Science (2010) and were a 2017-2018 Fellow with Data and Society and a 2017 Fellow with the Open Technology Fund.
