Digital Defense Playbook: Community Power Tools for Reclaiming Data

, ; Gangadharan, Seeta; Saba, Mariella; Petty, Tawana

Our Data Bodies (ODB) has conducted research and produced a workbook of popular education activities focused on data, surveillance, and community safety to co-create and share knowledge, analyses, and tools for data justice and data access for equity. We hope that our work will enhance trusted models of community health and safety and help illuminate the differences between being safe and being secure.

We wish this Digital Defense Playbook, with all its activities, tools, tip sheets, and reflection pieces, will support organizations and community members involved in intersectional fights for racial justice LGBQ liberation, feminism, immigrant rights, economic justice, and other freedom struggles, to help us understand and address the impact of data-based technologies on our social justice work.
