In preparation for the 2020 U.S. presidential election, the Global Cyber Alliance and Craig Newmark Philanthropies have partnered to create the Craig Newmark Trustworthy Internet and Democracy Program. This new initiative provides news outlets, government functionaries, election officials, and community organizations with free toolkits and online forums to help protect them from cyber threats. A key component of this initiative is the Craig Newmark Scholars Program.
