Hold Your Boundaries

A blue Instagram post: Don't post anything on social media you don't want to discuss with police. Review and delete before crossing borders

Instagram post: Alexa is always listening. So is Siri and Google. Turn off your devices when planning civil disobedience.

Hold Your Boundaries is a social media digital security project I developed with Dr. micha cárdenas for communities most affected by Trump. Digital security tips in the form of short poems are posted twice a week on Instagram, with a description on the topic of the day and instruction links. It also exists as standalone WordPress website I designed.

In the wake of the current US presidency, it is imperative for women, LGBTQI people, people of color, immigrants, and Muslim people to understand the evolving risks of using modern communication tools and adopt basic security habits to protect themselves and their loved ones. As modern tech culture is largely dominated by white hetero cis men, these marginalized communities are less likely to have access to these knowledges.
