Electronic Frontier Alliance

The Electronic Frontier Alliance is a grassroots network of community and campus organizations across the United States working to educate our neighbors about the importance of digital rights. Participation is open to any group that endorses our simple principles. Read our FAQ.

Electronic Frontier Alliance Principles

As a member organization of the EFA, we believe that technology should support the intellectual freedom at the heart of a democratic society. In the digital age, that entails advancing:

1. Free Expression
People should be able to speak their minds to whoever will listen.
2. Security
Technology should be trustworthy and answer to its users.
3. Privacy
Technology should allow private and anonymous speech, and allow users to set their own parameters about what to share with whom.
4. Creativity
Technology should promote progress by allowing people to build on the ideas, creations, and inventions of others.
5. Access to Knowledge
Curiosity should be rewarded, not stifled.

We uphold these principles by fighting for transparency and freedom in culture, code, and law.
