Courage Foundation - Definition from the Hotspot Shield Encyclopedia

The Courage Foundation is a trust fund that was established to provide funds for the legal defense of civil dissidents like whistleblowers and journalists.

The trust accepts donations and mainly accepts funds in the form of bitcoins. Its aim is to provide legal protection to those individuals who dare to speak out against the status quo, allowing them to publish their works without fear of being involved in a legal battle with no support or advice. There are several notable journalists who are supported using this fund including Lauri Love, Chelsea Manning and Matt DeHart. The individuals covered by this foundation are often involved in disputes and legal cases with governments relating to national security issues.
