Center for Technology & Society

How do we ensure justice and fair treatment for all in a digital environment? How do we counter online hate, protect free speech, and use social media to reduce bias in society? The Center for Technology and Society takes ADL’s civil rights mission and applies it to the 21st century.

In a world riddled with cyberhate, online harassment, and misuses of technology, the Center for Technology and Society (CTS) serves as a resource to tech platforms and develops proactive solutions. CTS aims for global impacts and applications in an increasingly borderless space. It is a force for innovation, producing cutting-edge research to enable online civility, protect vulnerable populations, support digital citizenship, and engage youth. CTS builds on ADL’s century of experience building a world without hate, and supplies the tools to make that a possibility both online and off-line.
