OUR ONGOING PROJECTS
SAFE DOCUMENTATION AND REPORTING FOR ALL
In cooperation with the Center for Applied Nonviolent Action and Strategies (CANVAS), BAM is developing Whistler, an activist toolkit to fight surveillance, censorship and repression. Designed specifically for closed societies and highly repressive environments, Whistler will enable human rights defenders, democracy advocates and journalists to work while staying safe, both online and in the physical world. Whistler will pack documentation and data-collection tools, a panic button for emergency situations and give access to training material on civil resistance and movement building. The mobile application will be available on Android at first, and later on iOS.
Skill-building workshops and training
On the ground with activists, on university campuses, with policy-makers or in the media, BAM is committed to strengthening the capacity of people-power movements and civil society around the world, not only to challenge authoritarianism and injustice, but to ensure peaceful and durable transitions to democracy. BAM's courses and training workshops, online or offline, develop the practical skills of participants on how to build and sustain movements, mobilize large numbers of supporters, formulate and communicate their vision, devise effective tactics and strategies, and remain safe in the face of violent repression. BAM also offers digital security audits and training, to help at-risk groups and individuals face surveillance, censorship and repression.
