Our Work

Open Privacy spearheads a number initiatives aligned with our mission and our tenets:

  • Decentralize Control - Technology should prioritize anti-surveillance and consent. No one party should be able to exert power over the whole system.
  • Design for the Margins - It is vital to understand the risks faced by underrepresented, persecuted, or victimized communities. Only through that understanding can we build systems that empower, rather than oppress.
  • Privacy through Transparency - The only way to build a robust sysem is to open it up to the world. Processes and protocols should be well documented and free for anyone to inspect and comment on.
