65 elections are due to take place in 2024. The Global Coalition for Tech Justice is a global movement to ensure Big Tech plays its role in protecting elections and citizens’ rights and freedoms across the world, particularly in the global majority where companies – Meta/Facebook, Google/YouTube, Twitter, TikTok et al – have been negligent in dealing with the impacts of their social media and messaging products.
Big Tech’s staggering wealth and power has allowed them to evade accountability… up till now.
Since 2019, Digital Action has been mobilizing a global network of partners to demand better standards from the governments and corporations responsible for our digital environments.
Social media companies have acquired billions of users across the world. Their extractive business practices, from irresponsible data gathering to inscrutable algorithms, have generated a wide range of digital threats to democracy and human rights. All of this can bring severe offline consequences, from encouraging violence, to intensifying societal inequalities, polluting public discourse moments of crisis and opportunity for democratic rights. That’s why we campaign with partners around the globe to hold Big Tech companies accountable.
We are a 501(c)3 fiscally sponsored project based in the US. Our team is based in Kenya, Zambia, the UK, Palestine and Germany.
