EFF 2022 Annual Report

Oct 04, 2023
  • Description

From local to international policy fronts, EFF's advocacy got results in 2022. In the European Union, we lobbied hard for a Digital Markets Act that recognized the value of interoperability and meaningfully restrained the power of "gatekeeper" platforms. Sustained pressure from EFF, our members, and our allies helped protect free expression online by keeping Congress from mandating filters or link taxes. EFF also was instrumental in Congress passing the Safe Connections Act, a bill that makes it easier for survivors of domestic violence to keep their phone number while leaving a family plan. This simple protection can be essential to stopping abusers from using access to their victims' cellphone plans to track and harass.
