I have been invited to present a workshop Canadian Association of Journalists Conference on using security tools that can help reporters protect themselves and their sources from prying eyes. Please help cover the cost of my flight to Halifax More

Protecting sources is a cornerstone of journalism, but many reporters haven’t caught up with what that means in our digital age. Earlier this year I discovered a way to measure how many Canadian journalists encrypt their emails, and the results were shockingly low.

I wrote an article for CANADALAND on the subject, and since then I have helped organize “Security Boot Camps” and trainings for journalists that are taking place in Toronto, Vancouver and Halifax.

I was invited to lead the event in Halifax myself, which is taking place during the CAJ conference June 5th-8th, so long as I can arrange for my own travel and accommodations.

As a freelancer, I am looking for some support in covering roughly $500 cost of the flight to Halifax. If you are in a position to help I would greatly appreciate any donation that you are able to give.
