Anti-Net Neutrality legislation, SOPA/PIPA, the Trans-Pacific Partnership, and other bad ideas were all beaten back in 2014 by creative campaigns and innovative tools by digital activists from organizations like Fight for the Future, the Electronic Frontier Foundation, Free Press, ACCESS, and others.

Let’s explore these case studies, see how digital advocacy tools and tactics can apply to other issue areas, and chart out the future for online freedom.
