At the end of May, the FSFE looked for a EU public policy programme manager to work with us full-time and now Alexander Sander has joined our team.

Alexander studied politics in Marburg and later became an MEP Assistant in Brussels for three years and the General Manager of Digitale Gesellschaft e.V. in Berlin for four years. Furthermore, he is the founder of "NoPNR!", a campaign against the retention of travel data. He is also a Member of the Advisory Board of the "ZMI Gießen" and the "Initiative gegen Totalüberwachung e.V."

We look forward to working with Alexander on our path towards a free society. You can directly get in contact with Alexander via email (PGP).
