Dance Skills, Life Skills Tier
reward item
$4
per month
This tier was created for my local dancers who take my classes and want extra training, and for people who, due to time or weather cannot always physically make it to the studio.

This is also incorporated into my live streams where we discuss self-improvement themes. 

If you're here for my research, you can practice this too!

I won't tell anyone you took a self-care break. ;)

Thank you for becoming my patron! Your support enables me to keep the majority of my content free for the public. It also buys me a coffee, which indirectly allows me to be a commendable non-freeloader and sit at a table in one of my local coffee shops, which I ten dto utilize as my office.

I sit in coffee shops with my books, notes, to do lists fairly regularly.  This tier enables me to work on my research, generate new ideas, curate more sources to illuminate aspects of my research and be a commendable non freeloader at my local coffee shops, where I spend, on average, 3 hours working.

You fancy.

Not many people can say they're funding countering violent extremism researchers.  This tier brings me closer to making my research my full time job and also, makes for some interesting conversations at your next cocktail party.

About

I am a subject matter expert on the Proud Boys, a fellow at the Khalifa Ihler Institute and a public-facing academic.

I have consulted with universities, social media companies, and journalists to provide accurate, responsible coverage of the group. 

I also provide insight into emerging threats from the far right. 

Your support gives me more time to continue the OSINT projects that have emerged from my ethnographic research with Proud Boys and Antifascists.

It also allows me to delve deep into the sources and through Glitterpill, build a community inhospitable to extremism. 

What Your Pledges Contribute To

Now that my incident tracking map is embedded in a global tracking resource, I can devote more time to transitioning to being a public-facing academic.

What does this mean for our community?

1. My tier systems will change. Everyone can pay what they want to support everyone getting the same kind of public education and community support.

2. More content More monthly reading lists. More weekly self-care challenges.
More opportunities to discuss the news through a critical, strategic lens.

3. Access to my private Facebook community of Glitterpill where the discussions will be held.

I hope you're as excited as I am for some radical new changes and much much more content.

All best,
Sam
