Martha Dark is a co-founder of Foxglove, a new NGO that exists to make tech fair for everyone. Foxglove is a team of lawyers, technology experts, and communications specialists.
Foxglove investigates: 1) the unfair use of technology to shape government decisions across the UK, 2) harmful technology exports from Europe to the Global South and 3) challenges abuses of power by Big Tech. Foxglove uses the law to protect rights, enforce rules and defend public interest. Foxglove’s first legal case, brought with the Joint Council on the Welfare of Immigrants, challenges a biased Home Office visa algorithm.
Martha was previously head of operations for the human rights charity Reprieve and chief operating officer of Open Rights Group.
