The global and interoperable nature of the internet is at risk. From tech used to shut down the internet, to proposed changes to internet architecture and protocols to enable surveillance and control, we see a growing trend in exclusionary policies and practices that jeopardize our shared online space.

In this town hall, we will raise concerns on these and other fronts by featuring activists and technologists and citing key examples of the abuse of tech and policies and brainstorm together on strategies to generate awareness and push back to protect the open internet.
