Sandra Kwikiriza - Executive Director

Sandra Kwikiriza

Sandra Kwikiriza is a feminist who has several years of experience in Human rights advocacy and activism, specifically focusing on LGBTQ and Women’s rights. She is a digital security trainer and also holds certificates in Campaign training, Media and Documentation and leadership certificates directly related to her activism for LGBTQ rights and has attended the African Women Leaders’ Institute. 

As a result of her expertise, community-mapping and research, Sandra identified issues and gaps affecting (W)HRDs and the need for spaces and resources to promote the digital rights, safety and security needs of LBQ womxn and female sex workers, thus founding HER Internet. HER Internet is a womxn led feminist organization that advocates for the digital rights and internet freedoms of women focusing on LBQ (lesbians, bisexual and queer) womxn and female sex workers.

HER Internet has responded to high levels of cybercrime, increased surveillance by state and non-state actors, and online violence directed at womxn and LBTQ movements. Their programs focus on creating and providing safe spaces, rights-based training and advocacy through digital and in-person space-holding. Their ways of working reflect strong organization and accountability among their small team and a solid commitment to building connectively across digital feminist movements.

HER Internet is working within the Feminist Principles of the Internet to advocate for development and use of technologies that challenge sexism and discrimination on the bases of self-determination and as influenced by feminist principles and queer theory.
With their expertise in feminist and queer movement-building, HER Internet is working specifically on the rights of queer women to freedom of expression, privacy, data protection and Internet access, given their experiences of erosion of safe spaces and increasing restrictions and rights violations in Uganda specifically.
