Lyn Ulbricht

Lyn Ulbricht is Activist, Public Speaker, CEO Ross Ulbricht Defense Effort, and Guest lecturer University of Southern California.
 
Lyn is a political activist and well-known advocate for constitutional protections, individual freedom, and privacy. She is also the mother of Ross Ulbricht, who is currently serving a double life sentence without parole for all non-violent charges, based on his role in the Silk Road website. This was a “dark web” site, rooted in free market principles, where people the world over traded bitcoin for a variety of goods — both legal and illegal.
 
Having seen her only son incarcerated for life after a strongly contested trial and investigation rife with proven corruption, Lyn is dedicated to fighting for his rights, as well as the rights of the thousands who have been victimized by our flawed criminal justice system and the drug war. She strives to direct awareness to the important precedents being set with this high profile case, issues that will impact the freedom and privacy of all Americans in the burgeoning digital age.
 
Lyn has spoken at numerous events, both in the US and Europe; appeared on a range of TV, radio, and podcast shows, including Reason TV, CNN, HuffPost Live, and Fox; and conducted many interviews with both major and alternative media, including the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Forbes, and The Guardian. She is also prominently featured in the documentary Deep Web and is a guest lecturer at University of Southern California.
 
When not working to raise awareness, Lyn focuses on raising funds for Ross’s appeal through www.freeross.org.
