Volunteers drive Open Rights Group, bringing in the knowledge, experience and skill that helps us win our campaigns. We are always looking for people like you to support our work.
Volunteering with ORG put me bang in the middle of bright, dedicated and fascinating people that were studying and influencing the nitty-gritty of major stories and developments in digital rights, fighting to ward off selfish or misguided interferences from leaders & lobbies that constantly threaten the technologies we now depend on.
I was really pleased, and proud, to have been involved with ORG's tentative steps towards direct legal intervention.

There are many ways you can get involved, here are some we're looking for now:
If you can give up a day or more to come in and help in the office, it would be greatly appreciated. Email us when you are available and what kind of things you have an interest in doing and we can find a time and a role for you. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Our internships offer a great way to gain experience in the field of digital rights, be that Intellectual Property Law, government data transparency, preventing censorship, protecting online privacy or bringing down the Digital Economy Act. Our interns have a structured role, and are vital in all of our campaigns and actions - and they don't fetch coffee. Find out more
We would be unable to run without supporter donations. We need to reach out to more technologists and campaigners by attending more conferences and meet-ups to spread the word about Open Rights Group. If you like talking about digital rights issues and can spare some time then please drop us a line and join the mailing-list.
If you don't have the time for any of these roles, please read our get involved page which lists some of the other ways you can help ORG!
