We produce cutting edge research that illuminate how race, ethnicity and identity shape and are shaped by the design, deployment and use of digital technology applications and platforms, and how these technologies structure power to impact communities of color. We mobilize our collective knowledge, expertise, and life experiences as scholars of color to inform and engage the public and influence the public agenda. We aim to ensure that the technologies we design and build strengthen democracy, reduce inequality and discrimination, minimize disparate harms, expand opportunity ad provide the means to build and strengthen community, empower communities of color."
