MENA 2020.png

The monthly meetups bring together folks from the MENA region to share, connect, seek help, and release stress by celebrating each other. In addition, it's a time for us to find ways to support each other, and help us understand what is happening in our part of the world. If you cannot attend the monthly meetups, we are taking notes of each gathering and linking to them below.

Besides educational workshops and video based meetups, the MENA group is now offering 1-hour, text based chat that features different people from the international digital rights scenes and not only from MENA. The aim is to overlape with different international groups, and to bring more voices from our region to the international digital rights scene. This format will help people get introduced to new projects, build attention to specific cases, to recruit volunteers, testers, researchers, and other things! This takes place in the MENA room on the IFF Mattermost.

The MENA community is connected during the week in different ways. Either through various MENA-focused channels on the IFF Mattermost or via different events organized on various topics during the year.
