In addition, they seek to expand its transformative powers in order to make it an affordable and private space that both enriches and empowers users.
The group realizes their goals by putting together web-based campaigns that resonate with millions of people around the globe. Since Fight for the Future s foundation in 2011, they have organized a number of high profile protests, including the largest online protest in history, an internet-wide strike against web censorship that put an end to the SOPA and PIPA bills.
Fight for the Future firmly believes that public interest and protest can prevail over digital censorship, interference, and surveillance, even when up against some of the most powerful and entrenched political forces in the world.
Privacy International is a non-profit group that is fiercely committed to fighting for people's privacy worldwide. They investigate government surveillance, expose companies that enable it, advocate laws that protect privacy, and call out those who overstep them—all with the goal of protecting the greater public and keeping them informed and engaged.
Privacy International envisions a world where privacy is a right that is universally respected and have worked towards it since 1990 by partnering with developing countries and working with international organizations that protect those who are most vulnerable.
Privacy International believes that privacy is an essential aspect of human autonomy and dignity that is becoming increasingly violated in this rapidly advancing technological world. They wish to turn this around by ensuring that legal and digital developments strengthen, instead of undermine, people's privacy.
