Help Send EFF to SXSW

The annual conference and festival South by Southwest has launched its Panel Picker, inviting the Internet community to help select the panels that will be featured at the next event. There are quite a few panels this year featuring EFF staff members.

We would love to go advocate for digital liberties in Austin next year, so we’re asking our friends and fans to please take a few moments to vote for us.

Here's how you can help:

Step 1: Visit the Panel Picker site and login or register for a new account.

Step 2: Click each of the links below.

Step 3: Click the “thumbs up” next to the panel description.

Step 4: Share this blog post! Suggested tweet: I want to see the @EFF in Austin. Please vote for them in SXSW's Panel Picker:
