Electronic Frontier Alliance
As a member organization of the EFA, we believe that technology should support the intellectual freedom at the heart of a democratic society. In the digital age, that entails advancing:
1. Free Expression
People should be able to speak their minds to whoever will listen.
Technology should be trustworthy and answer to its users.
Technology should allow private and anonymous speech, and allow users to set their own parameters about what to share with whom.
Technology should promote progress by allowing people to build on the ideas, creations, and inventions of others.
5. Access to Knowledge
Curiosity should be rewarded, not stifled. We uphold these principles by fighting for transparency and freedom in culture, code, and law.
Electronic Rights Rainier
Electronic Rights Rainier is a digital civil liberties organization for Washington State. Their mission is to champion privacy and security, which are necessary for a healthy American democracy, through community outreach, collaboration, education, and state and local policy advocacy. ERR teaches people how to use secure technologies, advocate for state and local policies which support privacy and security, and work with other local organizations to support these goals.
Emerald Onion is a Seattle-based 501(c)3 not-for-profit and encrypted-transit internet service provider. They work to protect privacy, anonymity, access to information, and free speech online. To further that mission, they operate high-capacity, fully open Tor exit routers with connectivity to the Seattle Internet Exchange. Emerald Onion envisions a world where access and privacy are the defaults. If we do not have human rights online, we will not have them offline, either.
