Cryptoparty Ann Arbor is a community of privacy-minded educators, techies, activists, and enthusiasts working to help you reclaim your privacy. We put people first, and see within technology the potential for liberating social change.

What we do

  • Educate public on privacy issues in the digital age.
  • Informal training and assistance to empower people to live their lives as they see fit.
  • Fight back against privacy intrusions, from greedy corporations to nosey government bureaus.

Electronic Frontier Alliance

As a member organization of the Electronic Frontier Alliance, 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.
