I am an activist, writer, and attorney. I fight for freedom of expression online, especially on social media platforms. I also advocate for anonymity and privacy with governmental bodies and companies, help activists and other vulnerable communities identify and defend against security threats, and fight against the rapid spread of street level surveillance technology. I have coordinated a variety of US campaigns to limit surveillance at the national and local level, and have worked on EFF’s Street Level Surveillance project and Surveillance Self-Defense project. I am an independent consultant and writer. Most recently, I worked as an Activist at Electronic Frontier Foundation.  I got especially interested in surveillance because of the experiences of Arab and Muslim Americans after 9/11. I am a Syrian-American, genderqueer, and my pronoun is They.
