EPIC Champions of Freedom Awards 2023

Join EPIC on September 20, 2023 at District Winery to honor our Champions of Freedom

The 2023 EPIC Champions of Freedom Awards ceremony will be held on Wednesday, September 20, 2023 at District Winery in Washington, D.C. The awards portion of the evening will also be live-streamed.

EPIC established the Champions of Freedom Awards to recognize individuals who have helped safeguard the right to privacy, open government, and democratic values with courage and integrity.

The theme of this year’s ceremony is “Envisioning a Better Future for the Internet.” We know a better future is possible, and EPIC is committed to doing the work to get us there.

EPIC will be celebrating public officials and leading experts who are working tirelessly towards a better future by strengthening privacy and civil rights protections in the digital age. This year we are honoring three amazing awardees:

  • Colorado Attorney General Phil Weiser
  • Alondra Nelson
  • Holly Jacobs, founder, Cyber Civil Rights Initiative

We are living in a time of significant technology and policy changes that will reshape our digital ecosystem and fundamental rights. As lawmakers around the world grapple with the impact of new AI systems that threaten to exacerbate data-driven harms and fuel mass data collection, EPIC is working to ensure that policymakers set new standards that protect privacy and civil rights online. EPIC’s work on these important issues has never felt more urgent.
