Community Team


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.

Our synchronous medium of communication is IRC meetings that happen every Wednesday at 2000 UTC in #tor-meeting 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, you'll use OFTC. The OFTC server addresses are: (alternative ports: 6668-6670, 7000) or for SSL (alternative port: 9999) (SSL is recommended).

Once you get connected and create a nickname, you can join the channel #tor-project. More info on getting started on IRC. and here's some info on IRC conventions and etiquette.

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 want to say something that you think is on topic.


Here's what we're working on right now:



Regular events for TPO to have a presence at (table, brochures, speakers)

New York City, US

Las Vegas, US
