Thanks a bunch, [trans member of team], for your edits on this page. Much improved now!
added an integration to this channel: twitter
Okay, I think I’ve got the Twitter link fixed to post here instead of in #allies.
Here’s what already posted in that channel:

@everyone, feeling motivated by the wonderful marches and rallies? If you’re not out in the streets and are itching to do something to help, I have tasks with http://proactivesteps.info with which I need help. Just @ me here in Slack and I’ll hook you up. Thanks!
Hi everyone, I’ve not been posting much here because it got quiet, but ProactiveSteps.info is coming along well and starting to get visitors. “Tips for People with a Uterus” and “Tips for LGBTIQ” are the most popular posts so far.
I’ve got 20 open tabs of additional resources to go through and continue adding new posts and improvements to existing ones, but I’m very eager to have all your help in identifying needed edits and additions. Either comment in the appropriate channels here in Slack or by leaving a comment on the site.
Also, as January 20th approaches (cue the Jaws shark music) I’m starting to see more folks on Twitter asking where they can help join the resistance. I’m adding a new channel #resistance for us to talk about more political actions and groups than we’re including on the proactivesteps.info site. (As before, in order to reach as wide an audience as possible, I’m keeping that less focused on specific political advocacy actions.)
Just added a couple great resources in a new post: https://proactivesteps.info/2016/12/13/protect-yourself-from-online-harassment/Proactive Steps
Protect yourself from online harassment
Anyone speaking their mind online will encounter those who disagree. That’s a mind-expanding benefit of opening yourself up to the wider world. Some, though, may come under attack and no one deserves that kind of hatefulness.
You can take steps to protect your online safety.
The Speak Up & Stay Safe(r) guide is intended for those targeted online by individuals, loosely organized groups & cybermobs. It covers:
Preventing Doxxing (the publication of your private information)
Passwords & Login Security
Online Gaming Security
Reporting to Social Media
Reporting to Law Enforcement
Plan For Support & Back-up
Human rights defenders concerned with attacks from governments, major corporations, or other massively organized and/or resourced institutions should consult The Front Line Defenders Workbook on Security.
Okay! The site is public and ready to spread the word to a wider group of people. Let’s do this first in a “help us improve the site” way and then we’ll do a broader public announcement by the end of the week once we (I hope) have some additions and corrections.
Here’s a sample message you can use to help draw more feedback and improvements:
“Allies! Know good resources for those impacted by U.S. changes? Visit http://proactivesteps.info & suggest edits to help us share the best info”
Here’s a sample message you can use for general sharing of the site in a few days:
“Worried about changes in the U.S? You can take positive action now. Visit http://proactivesteps.info for steps to take to secure your rights.”
Concrete suggestions for positive action to protect your right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
