We launched Digital Democracy inspired by a simple but powerful idea: Technology should be used to empower even the most marginalized groups to engage in democratic action, on a local, national and international scale.

In the past two years we have worked in over 24 countries, strategically employing technology to enhance the work of our partners addressing human rights. From Burma to Indianapolis, Haiti to Zimbabwe, Bangladesh to Kazakhstan, Dd works with local partners to activate change and empower communities. Working with local tech companies and community organizations, Dd’s model focuses on human-centered, innovative collaboration to amplify local voices.

Where conditions are the worst, where work is hardest, where repression is strongest, where voices are the most silenced, that is where our work begins.
