At the Center for Democracy & Technology (CDT), we believe in the power of the Internet. Whether it's facilitating entrepreneurial endeavors, providing access to new markets and opportunities, or creating a platform for free speech, the Internet empowers, emboldens and equalizes people around the world.
As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, we work to preserve the user-controlled nature of the Internet and champion freedom of expression. We support laws, corporate policies, and technology tools that protect the privacy of Internet users, and advocate for stronger legal controls on government surveillance.
With offices in Washington, DC and San Francisco, and an international presence in London and Brussels, CDT works inclusively across sectors and the political spectrum to find tangible solutions to today's most pressing Internet policy challenges.
Can you even imagine what would happen if Comcast, Verizon, and whatever other massive giants had their way with the internet? Our prices would go up, our speed would go down, they would send the government whatever data they asked for, and small businesses and entrepreneurs would be at an insane disadvantage in starting companies that were reliant on open and equal access to the internet.
