Center for Digital Democracy

The Center for Digital Democracy (CDD) serves a vitally important mission protecting the privacy and welfare of the public in the “Big Data” digitally driven marketplace. CDD’s work helps nonprofits, the news media, policymakers, and concerned citizens/consumers understand and address the online business practices that increasingly influence our lives. We position ourselves on the cutting edge of commercial digital media developments, analyzing how the dramatic expansion of online and offline information collection, the use of sophisticated data analysis, and advances in the creation and delivery of personalized marketing are used to target individuals, families, and communities. CDD especially focuses on key areas it believes has a crucial impact on a person’s financial security, health, children, and civil rights. By combining advocacy, industry research, coalition- building, and media outreach, CDD helps hold accountable some of the most powerful forces shaping the destiny of the world—especially those companies that dominant the global Internet landscape.

People’s Action

We’re organizing millions of people around a bold agenda for real change. Our agenda isn’t a list of policies the establishment says we can win. It reflects what communities across the country must win. Knowing change starts close to home, we’re building powerful organizations nationwide where people of all races, faiths, and genders gather to make change. We’re developing local leaders who can power our campaigns and policy makers at all levels of government, and advance a national agenda worth fighting for. In short, we’re creating a movement made up of people like you.
