We took a minute to write and share some comments of encouragement for the community
- Dear Digital Rights Community: I know the world feels like it's on fire, but please remember that things always change. And we have the honor of working next to each other every day. Next to beautiful, smart, and good hearted humans. Not everyone can say that.
- Dear Digital Rights Community: I declare to you my love and gratefulness for the incredible ways you've taught me so many new perspectives. I know at times it feels this way up against a leviathan, but it is also true that the hearts and minds are able to change, you change forever... So much so that then they go and change hearts and minds themselves. What you do expands and reproduces beyond time and space, those are my kind of victorie.
- Dear Digital Rights Community: You make the Internet a better, safer, more caring place. The spaces you’ve created in the past and visions you share for the future give me hope! We are all here to help tend to the garden of online freedom and keep it blooming despite it all.
