VPN Community Initiative Village 2023
The 2023 VPN Village is a two-week virtual series of events focused on VPN user education and solidarity. The sessions held over the last week of November and first week of December will focus on regional user education, legal challenges to using VPNs, and using and scaling your own circumvention tools.
The Village is part of TCU’s VPN Community Initiative which was formed in 2022 to bring together a diverse group of individuals working within and around the VPN ecosystem - including providers, researchers, digital security specialists and technologists - to collaborate and share knowledge.
