Foxglove is a not-for-profit established in 2019 that leads investigation, litigation and campaigning to hold governments, public bodies and Big Tech companies accountable for digital technology and data-related abuses. Foxglove uses legal and research expertise alongside communications strategy to tackle the pervasive and largely unregulated power of Big Tech. It works in partnership with individuals, tech workers, civil society groups and communities who face the discriminatory effects of these technologies. In its short existence Foxglove’s work has impacted exploited tech workers, migrants seeking asylum in the UK; thousands of high school students whose future opportunities were arbitrarily determined by an algorithm and millions of UK patients whose data may yet become the property of powerful private pharmaceutical and healthcare providers.
