(Before It's News)

Many have contacted us with concerns about yesterday’s election results. At this critical moment, we want digital civil liberties supporters worldwide to feel confident that EFF remains steadfast in its mission and method: to use law and technology to champion civil liberties and provide a potent check against overreach.

EFF has worked for 26 years to build the a free and fair future. When civil liberties come under threat, we challenge the powerful—from those in high office to perpetrators of common malice—to establish limits and protect people. We know that freedom and justice don’t just materialize. They aren’t automatic or made inevitable by technology. If we want our technologies—which today are woven throughout our communities, our laws, our culture, and our very lives—to support freedom and justice, we have to work for it. Hard. We have to fight.

EFF fought in the 90s when the government came after Steve Jackson Games. We fought when we recognized that freeing encryption was key to building a just future. We fought after 9/11 heralded a flurry of incursions on our rights. We fought in 2005 when Mark Klein walked into our front door with the first solid evidence of mass surveillance. We fought in 2013 when Edward Snowden's disclosures ignited a movement to stop mass surveillance by governments. We’ll fight today.

We’ll fight tomorrow.

In 2017, we will fight for encryption, challenge the reckless deployment of state-sponsored malware, oppose mass surveillance of our digital communications, defend the freedom of the press, and prevent surveillance and censorship of social media. Attorneys will bring lawsuits, technologists will encrypt the web, and activists will organize, share, and engage. EFF will be there.

We want you to join us. This has always been work that we do together. Donate to EFF and take a stand for digital civil liberties.
