TRANSFORMING TOMORROW BY SHAPING POLICIES TODAY
We understand the critical importance of policy and legal reform in shaping the future of the digital landscape. Our mission is to promote policies and laws that protect the rights of individuals in the digital sphere, including freedom of expression, privacy, and access to information. We bring together legal experts, technologists, and activists to push for policies and legal frameworks that promote a free and open internet, while also protecting users from abuses of power by governments and corporations. Through research, advocacy, and education, we aim to advance digital rights around the world and ensure that everyone can participate fully in the digital age.
We work closely with other organizations, including civil society groups, academics, and policymakers, to build coalitions for change and to push for policy and legal reform at the national and international levels.
