Goodbye 2020, Hello 2021

2020 was certainly different and harder than we all anticipated. Despite the challenges that 2020 brought, the team at Simply Secure has done some amazing work, while also taking time to reflect and grow. We couldn’t have done this without support, collaboration, and solidarity from our community.

In 2021, you can expect to see some changes — including new team members and a new identity for Simply Secure, to match how we’ve grown since our inception! We’re hoping to expand on our work supporting consent, diversity and equity, human rights and infrastructure, as well as our growing portfolio of work around program design for supporting and funding trustworthy technology. We plan to continue working with individuals, projects, communities, and funders to  build and inform technology, resources and programs that protect people’s dignity, safety and privacy.

2020 Highlights

Looking forward to reconnecting with all of you in 2021.

In solidarity — Georgia & the team at Simply Secure

Missing Trouble: In Memoriam

This week we are marking the sudden passing of our Operations Manager, Nóirín “Trouble” Plunkett, who introduced themselves here just a few short months ago. We are heartbroken, and it has been hard to come to terms with this unexpected loss. Ame and I attended a memorial service in their honor this week in Boston, and we have been reading the multitude of memorials that have been posted online (including this one by Kaia Dekker, which deeply resonated with us).
