During the past six months, 7amleh has continued to work to protect Palestinian digital rights. This has included monitoring hate speech online, researching the impact of practices and policies on Palestinian digital rights and advocating for Palestinians right to privacy, right to freedom of expression and right to access economic markets at local and international forums. 7amleh has also continued to provide Palestinians with gender sensitive digital security trainings, digital storytelling workshops and opportunities to improve their campaigning skills. Thank you to our partners, advisors and volunteers for their support of our work.
