The IFF Mattermost is a virtual space where community members gather on a daily basis to connect with other digital rights defenders, share updates, and seek advice and support. For those of you not familiar with Mattermost, it is an open source software that functions like Slack. Besides the various channels focusing on various topics, we also host various events throughout the week, which you can find at the bottom of this page.
