Freedom of the Press Foundation, the pro-transparency organization I serve as a proud board member, is holding a year-end donation drive to support encryption tools for reporters:
Protecting the digital communications of journalists is now one of the biggest press freedom challenges in the 21st Century. A record number of whistleblowers have recently been prosecuted in large part because the government thinks it can now obtain email and phone records detailing sources talking to journalists, without ever attempting to force the journalist to testify in court.
To that end, we're providing you with an easy way to donate to support open-source encryption tools that can better protect the communications of journalists and sources. Your donation will be tax-deductible. You can also donate by check.
