Guillermo’s main goal is to facilitate the synergies among EDRi members and observers and making sure the different organisations that constitute EDRi work in the best possible conditions. He is also constantly looking for new organisations in order to recruit them to join the EDRi family. If you’d like to join us, he’s the one you should talk to.
