Statement on Joining Onward Together
Accountable Tech cofounder Jesse Lehrich released the following statement Friday on being named an official partner of Onward Together:
“It’s a tremendous honor to join the Onward Together family, and to have the opportunity to work alongside such a dynamic coalition of leaders in the fight for a more just future.
Our broken information ecosystem poses urgent and intersectional threats. Women and communities of color are disproportionately harmed by those threats, from online harassment and voter suppression, to disinformation and extremism. Working closely with a diverse network of progressive partners is not just important to Accountable Tech – it is essential to guiding our mission.
Secretary Clinton has been a trailblazing voice throughout her entire life – from Wellesley to Little Rock; from Washington to Beijing to Brooklyn. But more inspiring than any speech is her commitment to lifting up the voices of others fighting for progress, and Onward Together is an embodiment of that commitment. We could not be more grateful to be part of this community.”
