CALL FOR APPLICATIONS
Isis International would like you to apply for the
Isis International Activist School for Women Human Rights Defenders
5-12 April 2014 in Manila, Philippines
The Isis International Activist School for Women Human Rights Defenders is an 8-day training for human rights or women’s human rights advocates working in conflict and politically dangerous situations. Women human rights defenders (WHRD) promote and protect their own rights, and the rights of others. WHRDs face a litany of threats in their line of work. This is exacerbated by the fact that they are women challenging the status quo, or because of the nature of their work which focuses on defending women’s human rights. The current backlash against women’s struggles and their achievements have made these risks and attacks more grave and incessant.Read more: CALL FOR APPLICATIONS: Isis International Activist School for Women Human Rights Defenders

Here is how you can join the One Billion Rising Campaign this year, 2014.
On 14 February 2013, one billion people in 207 countries rose and danced to demand an end to violence against women and girls.
On 14 February 2014*, we are escalating our efforts, calling on women and men everywhere to RISE, RELEASE, DANCE, and demand JUSTICE!
ONE BILLION RISING FOR JUSTICE is a global call to women survivors of violence and those who love them to gather safely in community outside places where they are entitled to justice – courthouses, police stations, government offices, school administration buildings, work places, sites of environmental injustice, military courts, embassies, places of worship, homes, or simply public gathering places where women deserve to feel safe but too often do not. It is a call to survivors to break the silence and release their stories – politically, spiritually, outrageously – through art, dance, marches, ritual, song, spoken word, testimonies and whatever way feels right.Read more: One Billion Rising 14 February 2014

For 10 years, Tactical Technology Collective and partner organisations such as Front Line Defenders have worked with human rights defenders, in order to help them better to protect their sensitive data, their communications, themselves and their communities when carrying out their work, through developing online resources, books, and carrying out regular trainings around the world. As part of this process, we have developed the "Security in a Box" book and toolkit (https://securityinabox.org) which now receives around 200,000 visits a month.
However, in order to continue improving our materials and make digital security easier to understand and contextualise for specific communities of human rights defenders, we have begun a process of creating "context guides" which make the guide more accessible for certain communities at risk. The idea of this survey is to help create and improve such a guide, for LGBTI activists from Africa, which would help the community understand the need for healthy digital security practices by demonstrating the risks they face and providing stories of best practices from others in the community.
If you'd like a better idea of what it may look like, the first such guide, which was created for LGBTI human rights defenders from the Arabic-speaking world, can be seen in English here: https://securityinabox.org/en/context/01
