MDF is deeply concerned about the impact of COVID-19 on technology and society, especially as the crisis exacerbates economic and social inequities across the world and challenges our democratic institutions. We know the virus poses a serious and growing threat to our work and the work of the advocates and organizations that we support, and without thoughtful and coordinated interventions, we will lose ground on our most important priorities and goals. We also know that there is a significant need for funders and civil society organizations to access critical information to help them understand the current and future impacts of COVID-19 on society and the unique role that technology and the internet are playing as the crisis continues.
In order to provide needed information to funders and groups in other issue areas, MDF has organized the following directory of issues and groups leading work in key areas.
*presented in alphabetical order
Digital Hate and Disinformation
Future of Workers
