Members of the Civil Rights, Privacy and Technology Table bring their expertise from the civil rights, digital rights, media justice and public interest sectors to advance digital civil rights. Membership to the Table does not require endorsement of every component of the work. The Table is a closed partnership.
The Civil Rights, Privacy and Technology Table is an essential network for individuals and organizations in the civil rights, digital rights, media justice and public interest sectors to advance the digital civil rights movement. Founded in 2011 by the Ford Foundation, the Table includes more than 30 organizations collaborating to lead successful national and regional campaigns and set the digital civil rights agenda. The Table leverages relationships among the leading experts in civil rights and technology to address a wide range of technology and privacy concerns, including surveillance of immigrant communities, hate speech and online propaganda, bias in facial recognition technology and online voter suppression.
The Table is accepting applications for a limited number of organizations that work on technology-related issues that impact the civil rights community to join us in our efforts to build a more equitable digital world.
