Streaming Live by Ustream

Join the DC community to remember the life and work of Aaron Swartz, an accomplished activist, and call for Computer Fraud and Abuse Act reform. We will honor the contributions he made at the national level with members of Congress on both sides of the aisle who shared his relentless commitment to make the internet free and open.

Attendees will include Taren Stinebrickner-Kauffman, Ben Wikler, Dean Baker, Robert Swartz, Larry Lessig, Senator Wyden, and several other members of Congress.

Aaron is survived by his parents Robert and Susan Swartz, his younger brothers Noah and Ben, and his partner Taren Stinebrickner-Kauffman.

Remembrances of Aaron, as well as donations in his memory, can be submitted at

Rest in peace, Aaron, you will be greatly missed.
