About CDT - Overview
At the Center for Democracy & Technology (CDT), we believe in the power of the Internet. Whether it's facilitating a new generation of entrepreneurs, bringing workers in rural areas direct access to new markets and opportunities, or creating a platform for free speech that challenges authoritarian regimes, the Internet empowers, emboldens and equalizes people around the world.
CDT is a champion of global online civil liberties and human rights, dedicated to driving policy outcomes that keep the Internet open, innovative and free. CDT works inclusively across sectors and the political spectrum to find tangible solutions to today's most pressing Internet policy challenges. Our cadre of trusted, thoughtful experts are leaders in their fields, and are able to translate complex policy into action.
With offices in Washington, DC and San Francisco, as well as a presence in London and Brussels, CDT is committed to engaging civil society around the world in the policy decisions that are shaping the future of the Internet.
