Welcome to the Community Team page. The Community Team is for people working on growing and sustaining the Tor community, which means things like outreach, advocacy, teaching, support, and community governance. There's the internal Tor community of core members, and there's the external community of global users, but these are not always discrete categories, and this team is working to define what we mean by each.

This team includes anyone working on the projects described above, and we're always looking for more dedicated volunteers to help us with this work.
Our synchronous medium of communication is IRC meetings that happen every other Wednesday at 1800 UTC in #tor-project on OFTC. If you've never been on IRC before, here are some instructions to get started. These instructions are for a Mozilla IRC server, so instead of irc.mozilla.org you'll use OFTC. The OFTC server addresses are: irc.oftc.net:6667 (alternative ports: 6668-6670, 7000) or irc.oftc.net:6697 for SSL (alternative port: 9999) (SSL is recommended).
Our asynchronous medium of communication is the mailing list. This list is public in the sense that anyone can subscribe, send emails and read archives. Feel free to subscribe and just listen if you want, and feel free to post if you you want to say something that you think is on topic.
Here's what we're working on right now:
- Global South Outreach
- Tor Trainings
- Support Portal
- Tor Relay Operator Support
- Rapid Response Against Censorship
- Library Freedom Project
- Community governance
- the tor-teachers mailing list
- tor-teachers wiki of teaching resources
- Tor Browser Manual
- Tor Glossary
- Tor brochures in multiple languages
