It was created on June 6, 2020, with the intention of providing resources for self-care and healing amid the very necessary work of organizing specifically against anti-Black racism and police brutality, though these principles apply to any kind of movement work, and these movements are intersectional. This is a toolkit for organizers, students, parents, allies, and anyone for whom its message resonates.

If you’re taking to the streets to demand justice for the victims of police brutality and homicide, you may want to leave your phone at home. At the same time, it’s a good idea to bring a phone to a protest so you can record what’s happening and get the message out on social media. To reconcile this tension — between wanting to protect your privacy and wanting to digitally document protests and police misdeeds — the safest option is to leave your primary phone, which contains a massive amount of private information about you, at home and instead bring a specially-prepared burner phone to protests. The Intercept’s Micah Lee discusses how to do this at length in this video.
