"In response to anti-black racism and the deaths of countless black people, the country and the world are standing up against systemic racism in response. Many in the cybersecurity community have been searching for ways to amplify the voices of black and brown practitioners in the national security/foreign policy space. Inspired by the #ShareTheMic campaign on Instagram, Camille Stewart (@CamilleEsq on Twitter) and Lauren Zabierek (@LZXDC on Twitter) have teamed up to launch the #ShareTheMicInCyber Twitter campaign.

In response to the brilliant #ShareTheMicInCyber campaign, we started raising funds for Najla (@ForSci_Q) to sit for the PMP, OSCP, CISSP and SANS DFIR courses/exams. We ended up raising the $2000 to cover Najla's expenses and had SANS donate the DFIR course/exam in just one day and are now moving on to cover as many training, certification, and learning or advancement expenses incurred by Black cybersecurity and/or privacy practitioners in the #ShareTheMicInCyber group as possible.
