Amnesty International USA and Fight for the Future present: Human Rights and Web3 for Activists

event information

This is the beginning of a monthly salon series inviting human rights organizers and Web3 creators to intentionally shape a human-first future for the web.

This first salon, presented by Amnesty International and Fight for the Future, will bring together representatives of human rights organizations to present and discuss their current orientations and thoughts around emerging Web3 technologies like blockchain, the metaverse, and more.

This month’s event includes representatives of Access Now, DWeb, Electronic Frontier Foundation, Fight for the Future, and Internet Archive discussing topics such as:

- What is web3?
- The hopes and perils of specific web3 technologies
- How the next generation of the internet could alter global human rights
- What’s happening now: a brief of civil society’s engagement with web3

Participants are encouraged to submit questions for discussion. Our intent is to have a critical discussion of the place that human rights activists can take in shaping these controversial emerging technologies, and create a space where we can learn from each other.
