Description

It's that time of year again! Join us for the EFF-Austin Holiday party on Monday, December 12th, from 6:00pm-8:00pm in the backroom of The Cedar Door at 201 Brazos Street. We will have a full open bar for our guests to make use of (suggested 2 drinks per person), as well as free appetizers courtesy of The Cedar Door.

EFF-Austin (Electronic Frontier Foundation of Austin) is a local advocacy, educational, and community-organizational group that promotes bringing together those interested in learning about the myriad ways in which our ever evolving digital culture affects our communities and our societies. We host monthly meetups featuring speakers on a variety of topics - recent discussions have included Austin's Regional Intelligence Center, technology and its role in voter empowerment, an overview of the internet's Domain Name System, digital literacy, and cyborg civil liberties. In addition to this learning, EFF-Austin hopes to provide a resource whereby those interested in creating change in our digital world can meet like-minded minds and have a community to collaborate with and support them in their endeavors.

In addition to the party serving as a chance to get to know our fellow digital citizens in a more relaxed setting, the party is a great opportunity to learn about what's planned for EFF-Austin in the coming year. Like last year, EFF-Austin has recently welcomed several new board members from diverse backgrounds, bringing us to a fully-staffed board of nine members. We have also seen the appointment of a new president and forged many new relationships with volunteers and other community groups. Given recent events in our country, we find EFF-Austin's mission more vital than ever, and we hope that you will be inspired to get involved and help us create a free and open digital future for everyone. To that end, we highly encourage you, our fellow digital citizens, to let us know what you would like to see from EFF-Austin in the coming months.
