Our work supports a growing field of organizations and networks working to ensure that digital technologies are designed and governed in ways that advance equity and justice. We seek to keep the internet open, accessible, and secure for all people. Our grantees are advancing effective and equitable public interest technology policies, regulations, technical infrastructure, and social norms, as well as increasing public awareness of the impact of digital communications technologies on society.
We also support the development of a robust, diverse field of public interest technologists who bring a social justice lens to their work. We support organizations and networks that are working at the intersection of civil rights, social justice, and technology—challenging corporate and government surveillance and discriminatory technology tools and practices, and working toward freedom of expression, accessibility, privacy, and net neutrality—and investing in communities that advocate for digital rights and access.
