This campaign is now closed, but contributions to the Cyberdefense for Reproductive Rights Fund can still be made here: https://give.berkeley.edu/fund/FN0516000
In the aftermath of the Superme Court’s Dobbs decision a disturbing rise in cyberattacks against abortion clinics has been reported together with other cyber threats designed to “disrupt services, intimidate providers and patients, and prevent women from getting the care they need.”
Our fund supports 1) UC Berkeley’s costs related to planning and delivering cybersecurity technical assistance for reproductive rights groups, and 2) original research projects to better understand and protect digital security in support of safe and equitable access to reproductive rights.
At UC Berkeley’s Center for Long-Term Cybersecurity at the School of Information we’ve pioneered trailblazing work that trains diverse teams of students to research the challenges and design direct technical assistance solutions that help individuals and organizations secure skills in Cyberdefense for Reproductive Rights.
