This is the third installment of a podcast following local activism efforts I am spearheading to address the surveillance state in Lexington, Ky. Through this series, you will get an inside look at boots-on-the-ground activism as it happens. The goal is to create a step-by-step how-to on tackling issues at the local level. You can find all episodes HERE.

Once you’ve identified an issue and you’ve decided you want to fight, it’s imperative that you have every bit of information you can get your hands on. You need the facts – not just assumptions. As they say – know your enemy. Not only that, you can easily make a fool out of yourself if you start activism and don’t know what your talking about.

Fortunately, government agencies make a great deal of information available online, or with a simple email or phone call.

In this installment of the Activism 101 Podcast, I talk about my initial information-gathering efforts after I discovered surveillance cameras in my neighborhood, and what they yielded.
