Lindsey was born and raised in Omaha, Nebraska, and is a proud Cornhusker (Go Big Red!). She discovered a passion for international human rights while attending the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and studying abroad in Latin America. After graduating, she worked at human rights NGO, Freedom House, and then went on to do a Fulbright research fellowship in Brazil focusing on transitional justice. She then fell into the world of internet freedom, exploring the intersection of human rights and technology at the D.C.-based organization Internews. There she led projects focusing on improving digital security and developing internet policy advocacy skills for activists and journalists in Latin America. For her summer internship, she worked at digital rights organization Access Now, where she wrote a report on the human rights implications of artificial intelligence policy. After graduation, she hopes to work in tech policy, helping ensure that the technologies we use and develop respect and protect human rights. In her free time, Lindsey enjoys traveling, being outdoors, hanging with her dog, eating chocolate, reading fantasy novels and seeing live music.
