Technology & Civil Liberties

We defend and promote social justice in the digital age.

Our movements for civil rights and social justice are as critical today as ever – but now that we live in a digital world and rely on technology to communicate, connect, mobilize, and access basic necessities – we often must fight on new terrain.

We work to build a world where technology works for the people and enriches our lives, connects us with opportunities, and supports a just and equitable society.

Our Focus:

  • We build on the inalienable constitutional rights guaranteed to all Californians to safeguard and promote privacy, free expression and other rights for people in this state and far beyond.
  • We uncover and stop dangerous government surveillance and build real public safety.
  • We empower people to have meaningful choices about how and when they use technology and to ensure that they can control how their personal information is collected, shared, and used.
  • We work across social movements to build power to defend and promote equity and justice in the digital age.
