The Internet Loses a Champion with the Passing of Sherwin Siy

3 months 2 weeks ago

We at EFF are devastated to learn of the passing of Sherwin Siy. He was a brilliant advocate and strategist who was dedicated to protecting and preserving the internet as a space for creativity, innovation and sharing. He was also a friend and generous mentor who shaped the present and future of tech policy by supporting and teaching others. We are grateful for the work he did, and deeply saddened to lose his voice, his perspective, and above all his spirit, in the work to come. The internet lost one of its champions. RIP Sherwin, we will miss you.
