Glitter Meetups

The Social Networking Glitter Meetup

The Social Networking Glitter Meetup is a space to connect with others in the community. Join us to talk about whatever you want: a project that you are working on, an event that caught your attention, general questions about the experience of working in the digital rights field, your insights on the latest big tech nonsense, and even your vacations. We will be happy to hear from you!

What is Glitter Meetup?

Glitter Meetup is the weekly town hall of the Internet Freedom community at the IF Square on the TCU Mattermost, at 9am EST / 2pm UTC. It is a text-based chat where digital rights defenders can share regional and projects updates, expertise, ask questions, and connect with others from all over the world! Do you need an invite? Learn how to get one here.


As this is a casual conversation, participants talk about their work, introduce their projects and update the community. In this case, a participant shares about their research work for Outline, as they are working on a final article to publish soon. They say that we already did a preliminary talk regarding the topic they are working on in one of our VPN Village 2023 session.

We talked about the things that made this participat focus on UX design, like the projects available to work in their home country, and questioning the role of the designer, that opened them to a new set of ideas about tech, society and their role in it.

For starting their carrier, they got accepted in one of the Tor Browser small research grant.
