The Electronic Frontier Foundation Defends Your Digital Rights

The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) is a nonprofit that has been tirelessly defending your digital rights since 1990. Here’s a quote from the about page of their website:

“Today, EFF uses the unique expertise of leading technologists, activists, and attorneys in our efforts to defend free speech online, fight illegal surveillance, advocate for users and innovators, and support freedom-enhancing technologies.

Together, we forged a vast network of concerned members and partner organizations spanning the globe. EFF advises policymakers and educates the press and the public through comprehensive analysis, educational guides, activist workshops, and more. EFF empowers hundreds of thousands of individuals through our Action Center and has become a leading voice in online rights debates.

EFF is a donor-funded U.S. 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that depends on your support to continue fighting for users.”

Organizations like the EFF are more important now than they’ve ever been. They run campaigns and events, host podcasts, make press releases, fight legal battles, promote digital privacy tools, document police surveillance tech, and much more in the name of protecting digital civil liberties.

My main personal interest in the EFF is their press releases. I find them informative and they help me stay updated. For others who might want to easily follow the EFF, here is a list of their RSS feeds.

If you can, please make a donation (not with cryptocurrency) or contribute to their work in other ways.
