Rights over Tech (R/T)

Mission Statement

Founded in 2019, Rights over Tech (R/T) is a student organization dedicated to ensuring that technology serves human and civil rights. At R/T, we seek to create spaces where techies and non-techies alike can have meaningful, challenging conversations about the impact of technologies, particularly on the rights of the most vulnerable and marginalized among us. Our members come from a wide variety of backgrounds. Some have PhDs in engineering or computer science; others bring experience working within tech companies, governments, or non-profits. In all, our goal is to provide students with the space to grow their legal, technical, and personal understandings of technology and its effects.
