Take the next step!
To ensure a liberated future, it is vital that we educate ourselves and others about the steps we can take to secure our computing rights. People around the world are realizing their responsibility to stand for user freedom against technological injustice. Now is the time to help each other move forward to full software freedom. Without free (as in freedom) software, we cannot and will not have a free society. Your membership will help us pave a way to #UserFreedom.
In order to protect your rights, we rely on support from people like you, who use and appreciate our work. Take the next step towards full software freedom. Share the free software message using the hashtag #UserFreedom on social media networks.

"Artifical scarcity is, fundamentally, misanthropic. Yet it is essential to the world which Big Tech is building. This is why, more than a mere moral compulsion, supporting the FSF is an existential necessity." -- Anonymous FSF associate member
"I fully support the widespread adoption of free software and I find contributing to the FSF is one of the best ways to do that." -- Pierre Rajoely
"I wholly support the ideals of free software, and clearly the world is a better place because of you. I think this "experiment" has now been proven! The ideals of FSF work, period." -- Jonathan Krell
