On September 14, we will be gathering to celebrate the work of the 2017 Pioneer Award winners: defender of global free expression Annie Game; first amendment champion Mike Masnick; and renowned whistleblower and transparency advocate Chelsea Manning.

We are also thrilled to welcome this year’s keynote speaker, Emmy-nominated comedy writer Ashley Nicole Black, a correspondent on Full Frontal with Samantha Bee, who uses her unique comedic style to take on government surveillance, encryption, and freedom of  information.

Join Ashley and EFF for a celebration of our Pioneers that will include drinks, bytes, and excellent company. We hope you can share this special evening with us!
