EFF-Austin is throwing a big, old Holiday party on Thursday, December 17th, from 7:00pm-9:00pm in the backroom of The Cedar Door at 201 Brazos Street,  and we’d love for you to join us! We will have a full open bar for our guests to make use of, as well as free appetizers  courtesy of The Cedar Door.

EFF-Austin (Electronic Frontier Foundation of Austin) is a local advocacy, educational,  and community-organizational group that promotes bringing together those interested in learning about the myriad ways in which our ever evolving digital culture affects our communities and our societies. We host monthly meetups featuring speakers on a variety of topics – recent discussions have included social media surveillance, peer-to-peer encrypted social networks, the role of the ACLU in defending digital civil liberties, journalism in the digital age, and digital archiving. In addition to this learning, EFF-Austin hopes to provide a resource whereby those interested in creating change in our digital world can meet like-minded minds and have a community to collaborate with and support them in their endeavors.

In addition to the party serving as a chance to get to know our fellow digital citizens in a more relaxed setting,  the party is a great opportunity to learn about what’s planned for EFF-Austin in the coming year. EFF-Austin has recently welcomed several new board members from diverse backgrounds, and with the increased resources and manpower this provides our volunteers, we are planning to implement a number of initiatives that we hope will allow EFF-Austin to perform its role of empowering the community more effectively. To that end, we highly encourage you, our fellow digital citizens, to let us know what you would like to see from EFF-Austin in the coming months.

No RSVP required, but we only have room for 100 attendees at a time, so if you want to make sure you get in RSVP here to get on the list: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/free-as-in-beer-eff-austins-2015-holiday-party-tickets-19933328121?utm-medium=discovery&utm-campaign=social&utm-content=attendeeshare&utm-source=cp&utm-term=l…
