We are a group of people who are interested in technology, information security, making things, and breaking things— in a word, hacking. We are pro-privacy, anti-surveillance, anti-capitalist, pro-freedom, anti-borders, supporters of open-source software, and believers in the right to repair. Our work focuses on education, mutual aid, and supporting direct action.
We believe anyone who is curious about the world around them and likes to think creatively can be a hacker - not just people who work in the tech industry. Our members come from a variety of fields, from penetration testing to nursing. "Hacking" can take a variety of forms, many of them far different from what hackers do in movies.
