Initiative on Race and Digital Justice

The Initiative on Race and Digital Justice, led by Director Dr. Safiya Noble, is a groundbreaking effort that focuses on deep and lasting public impact that foregrounds accountability and repair from extant and emerging harms. We are advancing legislation, building strong networks of coordinated work, collaborating with grassroots organizers, conducting academic and legal research, curating public lectures, and supporting new thinkers and leaders.

Our work streams are not mutually independent, but rather create an ecosystem that builds on, enhances, and amplifies the efforts of others. Our work engages with a variety of network touch points from policy makers to scholars, activists to tech workers to foster critical, sustainable, and scalable change at the intersection of race and digital justice.

The Initiative on Race and Digital Justice has already begun incubating work on key initiatives led by our current and incoming staff, fellows, and partners.


We will formally announce the initiative this Fall 2022.
