We began planning the Mexico City meeting with a new group,
meeting-planners at lists.tpo. Join us and help make the meeting awesome!
Kat and Jon sent their first swag bundle to a noteworthy volunteer! But
they need more teams to nominate volunteers for this program, so please
make sure you're nominating excellent volunteers for swag and glory!
Outreachy and Summer of Privacy
We've accepted two new interns, one from Outreachy and one from Summer
