Kyla Massey will serve as the IFF’s Community Coordinator, supporting a variety of community related initiatives that are core to the Internet Freedom Festival including Villages, Expo Area, and Social Evenings.
Kyla has been creating and managing creative spaces and access points for the past 15 years, creating avenues of access for Queer Trans P.O.C. & Black communities from NYC in local digital activist communities to Oakland, CA as a part of team Media Justice. Her drive to serve people creatively has carried her into classrooms, clubs and organizations, locally, internationally and cross-culturally. She is a developer who believes in the power of play and the outcomes of driven curiosity who happened to most recently fall in love with code. Her mantra is simple. Passion is a verb, it’s something that moves and is inspired and if you listen to it, believe in and encourage it, it can show you the ways help you create the world you want and hopefully a world founded on the equality of code.
