Confidential Communications

It’s unlikely that anyone will intercept emails or text messages you send us, but if you want to send us information that can’t be viewed in-transit, you may use either:

  • Proton Mail: Please send to [email protected]. You will need your own Proton Mail account to do that, but it’s easy to set one up. You can email from a browser or from an iPhone or Android app.
  • Signal: Use the Signal app, available for both mobile and desktop, to securely message us at 530-276-8778. With the Signal service, messages disappear after they have been viewed.
