The Internet’s most dangerous year

x

As co-founder of Fight for the Future, I’ve seen a lot of threats to the open Internet and our rights online.

But I’ll be honest, this might be the most dangerous time we’ve ever faced.

The FCC has voted to repeal net neutrality. The Cambridge Analytica scandal confirmed our worst fears about how our personal data is being used against us. We’re now living under the most sprawling digital surveillance regime in history.

,At this moment of maximum peril, the pro-privacy search engine DuckDuckGo is stepping up by offering $500,000 to organizations fighting for the open Internet—and the group that raises the most in grassroots donations will receive a $50,000 bonus.

Tomorrow is the last day of the DuckDuckGo challenge. Will you chip in today to help Fight for the Future seize this amazing opportunity to stop digital surveillance of all of our lives?

When I co-founded Fight for the Future, I knew that we were facing powerful opposition. Between corporations like Comcast and the U.S. government, we were picking battles against some of the most powerful forces in the world.

But now the Internet is at a turning point. Attacks on freedom of expression and our basic rights are increasing every day. And our small team is scrambling to fight back with the limited resources that we have.

Meanwhile, powerful enemies of Internet freedom are increasing their lobbying spending every year, and companies that once fought for free speech and Internet privacy are becoming giants that only look out for their bottom line.

That’s why we need your help to make sure we have the funds to stop these programs. DuckDuckGo is offering $500,000 to organizations fighting for our rights online. But for us to win the contest and maximize this opportunity, we need you to chip in today.

Will you chip in today? Your donation will help us compete for a share of $500,000 in prize money from the pro-privacy search engine DuckDuckGo.

For the future,

-Tiffiniy
