Glitter Meetup (GM) is the weekly town hall of the Internet Freedom community, attracting digital rights defenders from all corners of the world!! On this page you will find the notes or "minutes" from previous meetups, and information about upcoming ones.

  • Every Thursday at 9:00am EDT
  • Where On the TCU Mattermost? Secure an account here.
  • Missed a GM? Don't worry the notes of each GM is listed below.

GMs are text-based chats, and provide digital rights defenders with space to share their work, personal, or regional updates, as well as ask questions; secure support or resources; share their expertise; and grow their human network! From time to time, we invite a featured guest who shares their expertise, and participants can ask questions to directly. Once a month, we also host a more social GM called The Social Networking Glitter Meetup where you can connect with others in a more organic, social way.

We would love to have featured guests! If interested, email team@digitalrights.community
