Creating a Safer Community Spaces Toolkit – @PepeBorras
Internet Freedom Festival (IFF) co-founder and Director Pepe Borrás announces a new "Safer Community Spaces Toolkit" to be officially unveiled at the 2018 edition of the IFF. "The Safer Community Spaces Toolkit for community organizers and event designers is a practical guide with all the professional materials we wished we had when we first started working with communities. This curated manual is the product of years of community experience, combined with the expertise of seasoned professionals in gender, diversity, inclusivity, psychology, conflict-resolution and group dynamics. The Safer Community Spaces Toolkit will include: Best practices, strategies, methods, processes and decision trees...Self-assessment checklists...[and] Case studies and common scenarios," among other resources.

.@InternetFF Series: How to Create Safe Spaces
How does the Internet Freedom Festival (IFF) work to create safer spaces? Among the priorities is "mak[ing] sure the most vulnerable feel safe." Only then can the rest feel safe as well. "It was a lightbulb moment for us. To create a culture of respect and solidarity, people need to feel safe. That security is central to the work of our community, especially those who are working in human rights."

The nerdiest and most open of them all: @InternetFF 2017 | GenderIT.org
Internet Freedom Festival 2017 attendee Smita offers reflections on IFF '17 from a queer feminist perspective: "It was one of the first digital rights conference where there were equal number of men and women (47% were women attendees according to the IFF website) as well as a significant number of trans and gender nonconforming persons. It was SO refreshing! ...Spaces like the Internet Freedom Festival, with the fantastic staff, volunteers, coffee, croissants, music and dance, and glitter, are very very essential for [reclaiming tech as a space for diverse inclusion]." - Smita, GenderIT.org

Diversity in internet freedom: higher standards for all #InternetFF
From the Internet Freedom Festival in Valencia: "This year’s Internet Freedom Festival brings together more than 1200 people from 114 countries to discuss, collaborate, and find new ways to ensure that the internet stays free, open and safe for everyone.

Achieving such lofty goals requires a profound understanding of challenges on the ground, whether it is about phishing attempts in Egypt, infrastructural devastation in Syria, or online harassment of women in Pakistan. Knowing the context, how people access, use and make sense of the internet and the opportunities it offers, is key to ensuring that the internet indeed stays free, open and safe, especially for those who are attacked by the state, marginalised in their own communities, or otherwise unable to make their voices heard." - Andreas Reventlow
