Directors: Stephanie Hankey and Marek Tuszynski
RSIN (legal entities & Partnerships Identification Number): 8123 31 606
Objective (mission statement):
Our mission is to advance the skills, tools and techniques of rights advocates, empowering them to use information and communications to help marginalised communities understand and effect progressive social, environmental and political change.
Strategy (summary) 2014-2017
Tactical Tech believes that digital technologies and the information
they help us to create, collect and disseminate are critical to efforts
to defend and advance rights, to increase transparency and
accountability and to ensure freedom of opinion, expression and association.
Our work is dedicated to working practically to advance human rights and
uphold democratic principles.
While it is almost impossible to avoid leaving information trails behind
us when we use digital technologies, this is also true of those in
power, such as governments and corporations. This can be of great help
to those working to expose abuses of power and uncover injustice. For
this reason we have a dual focus: helping political actors to utilise
digital technologies to expose and shape issues on the one hand, while
ensuring on the other that they understand their own related privacy and
Our work – developed out of a decade of direct capacity building –
seeks to practically develop the specialised information and technology
skills and strategies of those working to defend and advance fundamental
freedoms. Our aim is to empower rights, accountability and justice
advocates and the communities they work with to use information and
digital tools effectively and safely, as well as to develop the
practice, creativity and aptitude of the sector overall.
