(Adapted from a Google Doc by Kara, an attorney and advocate based out of Boston, as well as the “Oh Shit! What Should I Do Before January” guide. Due to privacy and security issues for the compilers of the documents, I will not link directly to either of them, but you can send me a request via the contact form if you’re interested in viewing the source material.

Social media and the internet have been invaluable for organizing and activism. Unfortunately, they also make it very easy for you to be surveilled and/or tracked should someone want to do so. If you’re planning on participating in activism, it would be a really good idea to start to lock some of your shit down.
