Throughout the year, the OTF team also proactively listened to users and global communities most affected by repressive internet censorship, leveraging their collective knowledge and capacity in order to evolve the OTF program and better combat the increasingly sophisticated forms of censorship and surveillance at play today.

As threats to global internet freedom continue to rise, support for this community’s work is more critical now than ever before.
