Security Culture for Animal Rights Activists
POSTPONED: Security Culture for Animal Rights Activists: safeguarding the longevity of your advocacy
About this Event

POSTPONED: Due to the current spread of Omicron in Melbourne, and the tight space of MARC making social distancing impossible, we've unfortunately had to postpone this training session. This will give more attendees a chance to get their booster vaccine, and for the current surge in case numbers to hopefully slow down.

At this stage we hope to hold the event in late February or in March, but we'll be sure to email you once we have a new date in mind, and will seek to find a date that works for all attendees.

Thank you for your continued support and we hope to see you soon!


We are very excited to announce our first ever presentation at the Melbourne Animal Rights Centre! We are aiming to have a diverse range of speakers and topics come through MARC this year & to kick it off Chris Delforce, founder and Executive Director of Farm Transparency Project will present:

Security Culture for Animal Rights Activists: safeguarding the longevity of your advocacy.

This event has space for 25 attendees, booking is essential.

About the speaker:

Chris is the writer and director of animal rights documentaries Dominion and Lucent, and has been an activist for over 10 years. In 2014, he founded Aussie Farms (now called Farm Transparency Project) an organisation dedicated to exposing the reality of animal agriculture and advocating for the public's right to know about what goes on behind the farm gate.

In addition to full-time animal advocacy work, Chris is currently undertaking a law degree with a view to creatively use the legal system to improve the lives of animals. Recently, he initiated a High Court challenge to a NSW Ag-Gag law - the hearing is set for Feb 2022.

What will the talk cover?

This presentation will cover a range of ways in which we can protect ourselves, our data and the future of our activism by adopting best security practice. Through his years of experience Chris has learnt important lessons that we can all learn from:

? What is security culture and why is it important?

? What does security culture look like in your day to day life, and when undertaking certain types of activism?

? Encrypting your communications and media storage

? Best practice for using mobile devices

? Can police force you to unlock devices or hand over passwords?
