We’re excited to announce Fight for the Future (Fight) as the newest member of the MobileCoin Foundation.

Fight is a nonprofit that has been a digital rights leader since 2011. Fight’s mission is to ensure that the Internet, and technology more broadly, are forces for empowerment and free expression rather than corruption and inequality.

Using their tech activism approach, Fight is known for organizing the largest online protests in human history, including one in which over 24 million people and websites were able to defeat the Stop Online Piracy Act and the PROTECT IP Act that would have led to widespread Internet censorship.

Fight’s focus on privacy rights led them to launch the first major national campaign calling for a federal ban on law enforcement use of facial recognition, prompting bans in four major cities and more on the way.

Sarah Roth-Gaudette, Executive Director of Fight, offers her thoughts on joining the MobileCoin Foundation:

“Decentralized networks and cryptocurrencies have the potential to provide real alternatives to traditional systems in ways that protect Internet freedom and privacy. We’re excited about what MobileCoin is developing and look forward to advising them on issues of human rights and civil liberties.”

Welcome, Fight for the Future, to the MobileCoin Foundation!
