What we do

We ensure people have the information, rights, and power to drive change

We work to enable people to fully participate in civic and political life, to safely challenge power, and to access accurate, trustworthy information. 

We place a strong emphasis on supporting underrepresented groups who face structural barriers. Across our work, we want technology to work for, not against, democracy.

To advance our mission, we focus on two areas where we can put our experience, expertise, and resources to best use:

We work globally, with a regional focus in Africa, Asia, and Latin America. Luminate Strategic Initiatives works to address digital threats to democracy and is primarily focused on Europe and the US. Our Global Programmes team seeks to drive transregional change and strengthen our regional activity.
