Government Surveillance

CDT’s Greg Nojeim Honored by American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee

There are few civil liberties advocates that are more passionate or effective than Greg Nojeim. In his time at CDT, his tireless work has helped rein in overly intrusive government surveillance, enhance privacy protections online, and make government surveillance a human rights issue globally. CDT and all of those who work with Greg know what an incredible leader he is, and we are thrilled that the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC) is honoring him with their Ralph Johns Award. He will receive the award tomorrow night at their annual gala.

The Ralph Johns Awards is given each year to honor Ralph Johns for his dedication to civil rights and equality for all. As the ADC states in its release, Johns was a tireless defender of civil rights for all Americans, and he risked his own life and safety to support the 1960s civil rights movement in the United States, namely in the segregated south.

ADC is honoring Greg for his commitment to protecting privacy in the digital age, which we witness each day at CDT. The honor is well deserved. Congratulations, Greg!
