EFF Pioneer Awards – Part Two – Ashley Nicole Black

Come to the Fifth Annual Aaron Swartz Day Evening Event! Only 75 tickets left :)

“I’m afraid of my own government targeting me for surveillance because I make fun of the President for a living, and while I do it, I’m also black. I need government transparency and accountability. I need Freedom of Speech. I need quality journalism by journalists who feel safe to do their jobs. Because, without them, I can’t do my job.”

– Ashley Nicole Black, September 14, 2017

Ashley Nicole Black is an American comedian, actress, and writer from Los Angeles, California. In 2016, she became a writer and correspondent for Full Frontal w/ Samantha Bee. She was the Keynote Speaker for the 2017 EFF Pioneer Awards.
