What does the Library Freedom Project do?

We believe privacy is a basic human right, and that for information to be truly free, it has to be publicly available without being tracked.



We educate our communities on privacy best practices, why privacy matters, and how to be a safer citizen on the web.



We believe maintaining our privacy is critical to our everyday lives, and spread the word over numerous mediums.



Along with our vast community of friends and partners, we rally and organize for privacy-related causes.



We take action against governments and organizations that act against the interest of our privacy.
