Joining a group of sheroes

I'm excited to announce that I've accepted an invitation to join the Board of Directors of the Center for Media Justice, a prolific organization based in Oakland, CA working to establish democratic media ownership, fundamental communication rights, universal media and technology access, and accurate representation in news and popular culture for everyone.

CMJ's work spans many of the issues on which I work at EFF, but brings to struggles for digital rights the voices of vulnerable communities and individuals impacted by government or corporate abuses. The Center works not only on challenging the mass surveillance paradigm that has largely defined my career, but also on principles such as net neutrality and media representations of communities of color.

Organizing director Steven Renderos, joined by my dear friend lawyer-technologist Ken Montenegro, penned this excellent article in Wired magazine earlier this week explaining why Congress should let mass spying powers expire as scheduled at the end of 2017.

If you appreciate CMJ as much as I do, please join me in supporting the organization with a tax-deductible contribution today!
