The Center on Race & Digital Justice exists as a nexus that grounds and inspires research, action, and care. We see our role as connective tissue in service of supporting and coordinating a shared purpose to cultivate change and sustain impact.
Areas of Focus
Our network of visionary leaders develop and inform research that focuses on equity and justice that contributes to larger paradigm shifts in society. We make space for intellectual contributions that are legible, supported, and directly contribute to field building and positive, inclusionary social change.
We provide vital support to students, postdocs, and early career faculty to ensure the next generation of race, tech, and society faculty in the academy. We do this by mentoring scholars through the entire academic career pipeline, supporting placement of postdocs and faculty into academic jobs.
Policy & Advocacy
We engage scholars and practitioners in the field to share research and participate in policy making that foregrounds civil, human, sovereign and environmental rights, and justice concerns. We strengthen this work by supporting organizations, movements, and coalitions that address race, tech, and power.
We believe that in order to create sustainable, long-term societal change we have to create mechanisms of care to support the whole person, which means creating access to multiple types of resources, when needed. Sustainable change will never be attained without regard for the needs of the whole person.
