Alison Macrina founded the Library Freedom Project to help fellow librarians prevent spying on patrons’ online movements.   In May 2015 she was featured in a cover story in The Nation entitled “Not Your Grandmother’s Librarian: Fighting Big Brother in the Digital Age.”   She is also a core contributor to the Tor Project, designed to protect internet users’ freedom. Tor is a volunteer-operated/non-profit network that allows users to circumvent tracking and censorship, a tool that has been particularly valuable to investigatory journalists covering whistleblowers and dissidents.

Jeremy Scahill is the author of  Blackwater: The Rise of the World’s Most Powerful Mercenary Army (winner of the George Polk Book Award); Dirty Wars: The World Is a Battlefield (basis of an Oscar-nominated documentary film); and The Assassination Complex: Inside the Government’s Secret Drone Warfare.  As an investigatory journalist, he has reported from Iraq, Afghanistan, Yemen and Somalia.  He is co-founder with Glenn Greenwald and Laura Poitras of The Intercept, an independent online news publication that was the organ for the release of documents uncovered by Edward Snowden.
