<p>2020 has been a difficult year. We&rsquo;ve all scrambled to keep ourselves
and our loved-ones safe and healthy, coped with the isolation connected
to lockdowns and quarantines, and dealt with the
disconnection from our support networks — including friends, family
and even childcare. We worried about racial equality and hope the fight for
social justice will result in basic rights that everyone deserves.</p>
<p>Throughout all of this, Conservancy remained focused on its mission and on
the free and open source software community. While cheering those working to help prevent the
spread of COVID-19 and those fighting for racial equality, we know our
expertise, skills, and mission can only tangentially improve those situations. While
<a href="/blog/2020/apr/21/workduringcovid/">contributing
where we can</a>, we remain focused on the long-term nature of
software freedom. We keep working to grow and support FOSS
communities to plan for ethical technology down the road, so that software
freedom can be in the service of human freedom.</p>
<p>We&rsquo;re proud of how much we&rsquo;ve been able to accomplish in the last year,
even in the face of so many obstacles.</p>
