We are committed to creating and experimenting with technology, including digital safety and security, and using free/libre and open source software (FLOSS), tools, and platforms. Promoting, disseminating, and sharing knowledge about the use of FLOSS is central to our praxis.
Free and open source technology means transparency in code and function of the services we are using. As feminists, we must promote open source usage in our movements and activist spaces - as well as contribute to the building of the code - in order to protect our data and communications. Big brands have convinced us that the only safe and good-quality options for email or design or document processing or organizing online. But that's simply not true. Liberating tech and making it accessible, open, and secure as default is a central part our activism.
