Meet @Macjordan, Ghana’s First Internet Freedom Fellow!

The Internet Freedom Fellows program brings human rights activists from across the globe to Geneva, Washington, and Silicon Valley to meet with fellow activists, U.S. and international government leaders, and members of civil society and the private sector engaged in technology and human rights. A key goal of the program is to share experiences and lessons learned on the importance of a free Internet to the promotion of freedom of expression and freedom of assembly as fundamental human rights. Launched in 2011, the program is run by the U.S. Mission to the United Nations in Geneva.
