In 2008, we formed Digital Democracy (Dd) based on a simple but powerful idea: Technology should be used to empower even the most marginalized groups to engage in democratic action, whether locally, on a national or international scale. We are now transitioning from having a fiscal sponsor to being an independent 501c3.

The Dd Theory of Change
Mission: Empower marginalized communities to use technology to build their futures.

Vision: Continue our work using technology to encourage democratic engagement, protect human rights and empower marginalized voices globally.

Theory of Change: We believe change does not come from technology, but from how people use it. Our programs focus on a cycle we have identified: digital literacy, digital organizing and digital governance link to catalyze a 21st century “digital democracy.”
