  • UnFriendly Persuasion: Digital Dark Patterns Awareness
    February 11, 2023  2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

    At their essence Dark Patterns are features of interface design crafted to trick users into doing things they didn’t mean to, ultimately benefiting the business or website owner in question by pushing their priorities over the users’ intent. This workshop seeks to raise awareness of some common design tricks and help Friends stay on course as they navigate the modern web.

  • Data Brokers & Modern Surveillance: Dangers for Marginalized People
    March 4, 2023  2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

    Our online practices leave trails of data that companies rely on to make a profit. After reviewing some of the many kinds of data being collected, we'll turn to an exploration of some of the ways data is being used to the detriment of marginalized groups. For instance, mass incarceration and criminalization have gone high-tech with facial recognition, license plate readers, and electronic monitoring systems all becoming more common. Local and federal police as well as immigration control increasingly have access to vast commercial databases to track and trace people, often while circumventing individual civil rights. Based on these concerns, citizen groups in many cities are now pushing for laws governing the surveillance technology used by their local police departments. Join Friends at this workshop to learn more.

  • Spiritual Companioning Check-in
    March 5, 2023  4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

    LEYM Friends engaged or interested in the practice of Spiritual Companioning gather online at 4pm on the first Sunday of odd-numbered months for informal exchange of experiences, questions and opportunities to practice with others.
    As needed, activities may include: 
    • An introduction to the practice for newcomers (or a refresher for any who want it)
    • A chance to engage in a companioning session with people other than your usual group (we find that we all learn from each other when we cross-fertilize our experiences)
    • A chance to bring a message or insight from your practice to the group for additional discernment.
    • An opportunity to share what's working for you and your group
    • Forming or re-forming new groups
    If you have questions, please contact Barbara LeSage (North Columbus, barbaralesage@hotmail.com), Cassie Cammann (Ann Arbor, cassie.cammann@gmail.com), Mark Hoover (Ann Arbor, mhoover@umich.edu), or Joann Neuroth (Red Cedar, jneuroth@gmail.com).
