Astrea is a public foundation that is rooted in LGBTQI communities and movements. They work in strategic partnership with foundations, individuals and governments to ensure that resources reach the activists who need them most and who are best positioned to make transformational impact over time.”Technologies for Liberation toward Abolitionist Futures” is a report that emerged out of the need to better understand how Queer, Trans, Two-Spirit, Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (QT2SBIPOC) communities are disproportionately impacted by surveillance and criminalization at all levels—from the state-endorsed to the corporate-led—and to resource these communities to push back. Astrea’s research amplifies the movement interventions and responses that organizers are employing to create safety for the people they serve. Committed to their vision of collective liberation, they are pushing the boundaries to decolonize technology and place it in service of movement building. In doing so, organizers are shifting the narrative around safety and violence/justice.
