Without My Consent Semi-Annual Fundraiser Party and Panel Discussion

June 17, 2015, 6-9 PM

Monroe in San Francisco, CA

Without My Consent empowers victims of egregious online privacy violations to lead the fight against online harassment.

We document the law as it is. We identify obstacles to justice. We train lawyers, law enforcement, and advocates. We engage in solutions-oriented work with industry and government. We stand for free speech, privacy, due process, and equality in a digital world.
WMC makes educational materials on these topics available through this website, free of charge. Though the materials provided here are broader in scope, much of our work currently centers on the nonconsensual distribution of sexually explicit images.

Come out to support Without My Consent at our semi-annual fundraiser! Meet the team and learn more about our work helping to bring justice to victims of online harassment.

Celebrate Without My Consent with an evening of cocktails and conversation. Without My Consent celebrates its third year!

Cybersecurity and the Future of U.S. – China Relations

May 19, 2015
K&L Gates LLP
San Francisco, CA

President Obama signaled the national import of cybersecurity with a White House Summit on Cybersecurity and Consumer Protection in February 2015. We watched as U.S. allegations of North Korea’s hacking into Sony Corporation unfolded on the world stage. China’s PLA Unit 61398 grabbed headlines with its cyber espionage into U.S. interests. The threat of cyber espionage proves ubiquitous. This panel will focus on the most critical bilateral relationship in the world of cybersecurity today: between U.S. and China. Since the Mandiant report and the Snowden leaks, hostility between the two governments around cybersecurity has reached an all-time high. This program brings together leading experts from the government, private sector and academia to critically examine cyber espionage waged by both countries; the threats implied; and preventive measures envisioned by the best minds in the industry.

This is the second in a two-part ASNC program series titled Digital Dilemma on cybersecurity and U.S.-Asia relations.

 “Faking It:” Counterfeits, Copies, and Uncertain Truths in Science, Technology, and Medicine

April 10-11, 2015
470 Stephens Hall
UC Berkeley

Keynote address by Joseph Masco, University of Chicago

We invite colleagues to join us for a two day symposium at the University of California, Berkeley on “faking it”–here construed broadly as fudging, imitating, juking, playing the trickster, pretending, feigning, re-creating, manipulating, falsifying. Our aim is to bring together a wide variety of scholars whose work, in some way, touches upon this issue. We invite colleagues to consider any aspect of the practices, epistemologies, ontologies, and politics of faking, copying, counterfeiting, or quackery. We seek to amplify and incubate a growing attention to the theory and practice of fake truths on Berkeley’s campus and beyond.
