soul. Fundamental to our mission to help build a better Internet is
protecting the free and open Internet. Project Galileo: We equip
politically and artistically important organizations and
journalists with powerful tools to defend themselves against
attacks that would otherwise censor their work, technology already
used by Cloudflare's enterprise customers--at no cost. Project
Athenian: We created Athenian Project to ensure that state and
local governments have the highest level of protection and
reliability for free, so that their constituents have access to
election information and voter registration. Path Forward
Partnership: Since 2016, we have partnered with Path Forward, a
nonprofit organization, to create 16-week positions for mid-career
professionals who want to get back to the workplace after taking
time off to care for a child, parent, or loved one. *******: We
