Access Now defends and extends the digital rights of users at risk around the world. By combining direct technical support, comprehensive policy engagement, global advocacy, grassroots grantmaking, and convenings such as RightsCon, we fight for human rights in the digital age.

With staff in more than 10 countries, our diverse team works on a wide range of issues at the intersection of human rights and technology. We see journalists and other media influencers as important partners in the fight to defend human rights, and to shine a light on important developments, whether it is detection of an internet shutdown, uncovering malware or other attacks against activists and human rights defenders, analysis of the human impact of legislation or corporate policies, or recognition of powerful grassroots initiatives.
