Hello and welcome to Cryptoparty Ann Arbor!
Cryptoparty Ann Arbor is a community of privacy-minded educators, techies, activists, and enthusiasts working to help you reclaim your privacy. We put people first, and see within technology the potential for liberatory social change.
What we do
- Educate public on privacy issues in the digital age.
- Informal training and assistance to empower people to live their lives as they see fit.
- Fight back against privacy intrusions, from greedy corporations to nosey government bureaus.
Electronic Frontier Alliance
As a member organization of the Electronic Frontier Alliance, we believe that technology should support the intellectual freedom at the heart of a democratic society. In the digital age, that entails advancing:
- Free Expression: People should be able to speak their minds to whoever will listen.
- Security: Technology should be trustworthy and answer to its users.
- Privacy: Technology should allow private and anonymous speech, and allow users to set their own parameters about what to share with whom.
- Creativity: Technology should promote progress by allowing people to build on the ideas, creations, and inventions of others.
- Access to Knowledge: Curiosity should be rewarded, not stifled.
We uphold these principles by fighting for transparency and freedom in culture, code, and law.
Whether you’re simply curious or want to start a technical revolution, we encourage you to get in touch with us physically or electronically. The only time conditions change is when we band together to change them.
