Menu Categories: Share: Plugging in on Policy December 20, 2017 Mozilla Tech Policy Fellows continue to lead policy conversations around the world.   When Mozilla rolled out a new focused on tech policy this past June, the goal was to gather some of the world’s top policymakers in tech to continue advancing the important initiatives they were working on in government as fellows with Mozilla.
