[liberationtech] Need some advice re: online secure communications platform for a survivors group

Hi Lina,

   While the content isn't encrypted for most of their apps, I would 
recommend Sandstorm as a good hosted option for forums and other 
collaborative apps.  It's free for up to 5 apps (called "grains") and up 
to 200MB storage.  For more, it's $9 a month: https://sandstorm.io/

   For encrypted communication, Ricochet.im is pretty great and doesn't 
require a lot of work to set up.  It has sane defaults (requires Tor to 
run).

best,
Griffin
