Global Gathering

From TCU Wiki

The Global Gathering brings together digital rights defenders from around the world for three days of collaboration building, knowledge sharing, brainstorming, and rejuvenation. These are individuals working on the most pressing challenges arising at the intersection of human rights, social justice and technology, and/or are actively protecting their networks.
