Our fundraising campaign is all about the Digital Divide - our goal for this fundraiser is to raise $100,000 so we can send 100 4G modems with unlimited data plans to public libraries in Puerto Rico, and to fund CryptoHarlem for the next year. If we can raise more than that number then we can send more modems to Puerto Rico! According to our research there are 66 public libraries in 43 cities and towns in Puerto Rico. Please help us to help underserved communities in Puerto Rico get online and to help CryptoHarlem continue its important work.
The Calyx Institute recently became the sponsor of the monthly security clinic CryptoHarlem. CryptoHarlem is a Digital Surveillance Clinic that has been meeting on a monthly basis since 2013 in the Harlem neighborhood of New York City. It is always open to the public and completely free of charge.
