Access Now is a global human rights organization that defends and extends the digital rights of users at risk around the world. Our Open Forum Session will showcase some of our global operations in internet governance, highlighting our work in the issues of: net neutrality, privacy, digital security, and connectivity, all using a human rights framework by design.

The session will illustrate Access Now's successful work in collaborating with diverse stakeholders around the world, helping develop inclusive practices and mechanisms for many internet governance issues. For example, with our Access Now Grants program, we help provide necessary funding for grassroots IG organizations whose work positively impacts the SDGs. Much of our work is focused on SDG GOAL 9, helping promote inclusive and sustainable connectivity and fostering innovation through net neutrality.
