Tor at the Heart: Torservers.net
During the month of December, we're highlighting other organizations and projects that rely on Tor, build on Tor, or are accomplishing their missions better because Tor exists. Check out our blog each day to learn about our fellow travelers. And please support the Tor Project! We're at the heart of Internet freedom.
The torservers.net organizational network currently consists of 20 non-profit organizations in 14 countries that have joined forces to turn donations into Tor exit bandwidth. Each of the organizations participates in local and global events to teach others about what they have learned and to exchange knowledge on what it means to run Tor relays, specifically exit relays.
In close partnership with The Tor Project Inc., member organizations test new experimental releases, contribute to research at universities, and host Tor user meetings in their areas. Torservers.net has worked with a number of lawyers to produce legal assessments and publish guidelines for how to deal with complaints. In some cases, torservers.net covers legal costs for exit operators when needed. Members contribute to Tor and its codebase in many ways. For anyone interested in Tor, reaching out to a local Torservers.net organization is a very good way to connect to Tor folks!
