Media Democracy Fund supports media and technology policy organizations working to advance the public interest and human rights in the digital age.
We employ a range of strategies to achieve these goals, including organizing, public education, research, litigation, leadership development, and legislative and regulatory reform. Engaging new and underrepresented constituencies in policy debates and coordinating the strategies of existing groups and efforts are given particular emphasis.
Because MDF carefully researches our issue areas and fields, we do not accept unsolicited proposals or phone inquiries.
