As a member of the Access Now community, you’ve been part of some pretty amazing things this year. From fighting off attacks on civil society through the Digital Security Helpline to knocking on the doors of legislatures around the world, Access Now is on the front lines defending and extending the digital rights of users at risk.
Over the past two weeks, you’ve met:
- Dalia, a Sudanese activist who worked with our Digital Security Helpline to restore service to an opposition newspaper taken down by DDoS attacks during an election.
- Deniz, an Access Now policy fellow from Turkey working to promote freedom of expression and responsible internet governance. (If you missed it, check out her speech to the U.N. General Assembly here.)
- The D.C. digital security squad—Amie, Nathan, and Drew—who brought home some major victories in 2015, including the first significant reform of U.S. surveillance law in a generation.
- Tunisian women in tech who came together for Women Hack Day to promote equal access to technology.
2015 was a big year, and we’ve got even bigger plans for 2016. We’ll be launching a global campaign to fight for strong encryption, implementing a comprehensive plan to combat internet shutdowns, deepening our work with local partners, and expanding our capacity to provide 24/7 global support to even more users at risk.
Even a small contribution can go a long way in making 2016 our best year yet. Click here now to support Access Now before the clock runs out on 2015.
