How are tech workers planning to resist Donald Trump?

While top tech executives met with Donald Trump last month, thousands of tech workers were signing on to neveragain.tech. It’s a pledge to refuse to build databases of people based on their Constitutionally-protected religious beliefs. The pledge says, “Today we stand together to say: not on our watch, and never again.”

What actions will the tech sector take to resist Trump? If you work in tech, what are you planning?

Guests:

Valerie Aurora, co-organizer of neveragain.tech and a diversity and inclusion consultant at Frame Shift Consulting

Rainey Reitman, activism director at the Electronic Frontier Foundation
