The Mozilla Foundation is the organizational home of the Mozilla Project, a global community and public interest initiative that believes the web should be open and accessible to all. To protect the web as a public resource and empower its users, we create open source products, teach 21st-century skills, and spur grassroots advocacy campaigns. We build products that create opportunity and inspire further innovation. We believe in the importance of universal web literacy: creating a world where everyone can read, write and participate online. Our advocacy work addresses issues like net neutrality, privacy and mass surveillance, and often requires effort from all corners of the Mozilla Project.
