From: Deji Olukotun <deji at accessnow.org>
This week, we're launching a new campaign that aims to push back on
the increasing prevalence of internet shutdowns. Shutdowns have become
an early warning mechanism for human rights violations and they
drastically impact human rights and local economies. Worse, they’re
being used to subvert the most critical moment in the democratic
process: elections. Our goal is lofty -- to fight internet shutdowns
worldwide and to shift global norms so that governments stop ordering
Here are three ways to join this effort:
1. Sign your organization on to the campaign by emailing me. (We'll
manually add it to the site when it launches this week.)
2. Join the coalition mailing list, where members of the campaign can
share ideas and strategies to push back.
3. Spread the word! Tell people about this campaign and please let us
know if there is someone you think should join the coalition at
deji at accessnow.org. (Check out this awesome t-shirt created by Sinar
Project in Malaysia.

out the site, we’re planning to have embeddable code to create badges,
share graphics, and more.
Happy to answer any questions.
