View the class slides here


 

Hacking//Hustling in a Post-SESTA world, a panel addressing the harms of SESTA legislation will be followed by a half day of workshops in collaboration with t4tech, where sex workers and digital rights advocates will work together. The workshop will address safer communications, safer communities, threat modeling for targeted harrassing, doxxing self-defense and securing accounts and devices.

 

In an effort to support this program and its participants, and combat systemic inequities we are implementing the following sliding-scale ticket pricing for this program. Sex workers will be admitted for free.
