UCLA Center on Race & Digital Justice

Our mission is to strengthen the community of researchers, leaders, and frontline practitioners operating at the intersections of data, technology, power, and racial justice.

Our work cultivates accountability, drives equity, and seeks to contribute to the restoration and expansion of civil, sovereign, and human rights that are threatened by digitally networked systems of power and control.

Our Work

Our work is rooted in five key areas: Public Leadership, Research & Education, Supporting Civil Society, Public Policy & Evidence-based Research, and Collective Ecosystem.
