We begin the year surrounded by uncertainty in every dimension of public life. Yet pervasive uncertainty must not excuse indecision. Now is the time to stand firm against the hate-filled assaults, threats, and screams unleashed by the presidential campaign. This spirit gives rise to three priorities for the Open Society Foundations globally in 2017: to work on cyberpolitics, to support youth in the public sphere, and to continue our commitment to the rights of migrants everywhere. These are quintessential examples of the kind of philanthropy that we embrace, and we will pursue them without ambivalence.
