    Open Rights Group is the UK’s leading voice defending freedom of expression, privacy, innovation, creativity and consumer rights on the Internet. ORG is a member organization of European Digital Rights (EDRi). We campaign to change public policy whenever your rights are threatened, by talking to policy-makers, informing the public through the media, and mobilizing our supporters.

    Founded in 2005 by 1,000 digital activists, ORG is a non-profit organization. We have grown with the help of funding from charitable trusts concerned about citizens' rights. However most of our financial support comes from ordinary people, contributing small regular amounts.

    • ORG has a core staff based in London, headed by Jim Killock, Executive Director.
    • Policy is informed by an Advisory Council, consisting of a large group of technology experts, academics and activists who, collectively, have a wealth of experience.
    • The running of ORG is overseen by a Board of Directors, two of whom are elected every two years by our paying supporters. None of our Advisory Council members or directors are paid.
    • We also depend on a network of campaigning volunteers, including interns working in our office.

    ORG depends on regular contributions from people like you to run and win our campaigns. If you would like to help, why not donate or, better still, join us as an ORG supporter.
