Over the last year, the Freedom of the Press Foundation raised nearly half a million dollars to support important threatened journalism efforts. Over the past few months the Foundation has continued to build on its efforts, such as by taking over the SecureDrop project to make it easier for journalism operations to setup a system to get information securely and anonymously from whistleblowers. The Foundation has now kicked off its latest crowdfunding campaign, focused on supporting a series of encryption tools, including Tor, Tails, Open WhisperSystems and the LEAP Encryption Access Projects. Oh yeah, and its own continued work on SecureDrop. It's a good cause. While they focus on how these encryption tools are for journalists, that's underplaying things. These are tools for everyone.
