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 build and support healthy information ecosystems, where the information that shapes people’s lives is more accurate, independent, and inclusive of everyone’s viewpoints. We want public debate to be better informed and less polarised. This involves supporting investigative journalism, along with work to tackle the spread of misinformation, protect freedom of expression, and hold digital media platforms to account.
Participation & Dissent
We are focused on ensuring everyone is able to challenge power and influence the decisions that shape society. To achieve this, we support work to increase participation and make civic and political life more inclusive and representative of wider society. This includes the removal of systemic barriers, which prevent groups from accessing and engaging with power. We also work to protect those who dissent and support them to be more effective in their pursuit of change.
