CDD Mission Statement

About CDD

The Center for Digital Democracy is committed to preserving the openness and diversity of the Internet in the broadband era, and to realizing the full potential of digital communications through the development and encouragement of noncommercial, public interest programming. To these ends, CDD has four broad goals:

  • To enhance public understanding of the changing dimensions of the US digital media system, by explaining the communications options and the public-interest resources that citizens should have at their disposal.
  • To foster the development of a new generation of activists to work on digital media policy issues, and to make the media industry more accountable to the public.
  • To promote the development of a new online "commons," a consolidated and more visible space in which the public will have access to a variety of noncommercial sources of information and service.
  • To stimulate nonprofit organizations (especially progressive, public-interest groups) to become active producers of next-generation broadband media content.
