Technology Rooted in Community Needs
ACCESS | PARTICIPATION | COMMON OWNERSHIP | HEALTHY COMMUNITIES
The Detroit Community Technology Project’s (DCTP) mission is to use and develop technology rooted in community needs that strengthens human connections to each other and the planet. Rooted in the Detroit Digital Justice Principles, we work towards demystifying technology and expanding digital literacy in our communities.
DCTP also offers technical support to various grassroots networks including the Detroit Digital Justice Coalition, the Allied Media Conference, New America Foundation, and transnational groups interested in fostering community technology.
New Project: Equitable Internet Initiative
The Equitable Internet Initiative will accelerate outreach, training and wireless broadband Internet sharing on the neighborhood level in three neighborhoods in Detroit. The program’s mission is to ensure that more Detroit residents have the ability to leverage online access and digital technology for social and economic development.
