Edward Snowden is a former computer intelligence consultant who was compelled to leak highly classified information from the National Security Agency (NSA) after he became highly concerned over mass data collection on everyday citizens by big tech companies such as Facebook and Google, and the government’s access and abuse of this private information. On September 2, 2020, a US federal court ruled that the mass surveillance program conducted by the US intelligence agency, which was exposed by Snowden, was illegal and possibly unconstitutional. The Free Snowden website accepts cryptocurrency donations to help fund the legal defence for whistleblower Snowden. Snowden’s official legal defence fund is raised and run by the Courage Foundation, which also organises and maintains a dedicated campaign team to publicise the issues he disclosed, and advocate across global media to build an international support network for Snowden. Snowden has been charged with breaking the Espionage Act and has yet to return to the US. He lives with his wife in exile in Russia, where he was granted asylum and is now a permanent resident.

To help support the great work of Australian animal welfare organisations, Tokens for Humanity has proudly partnered with The Lost Dogs’ Home for the release of this animal NFT collection.
