Our Mission

The Digital Democracy Institute of the Americas (DDIA) is bringing together insights and actors across the hemisphere to shape a more participatory, inclusive, and resilient digital democracy. We apply research at the intersection of information integrity, belief, and behavior to build trust, connection, and capacity with Latino communities and to shape policy interventions that bridge-build and depolarize shared information spaces for healthier democracies in the Americas.

Our Vision

We envision a world where Latinos are surrounded by fact-based, reputable information that empowers them to make their voices heard across the ocean of content that is today’s Internet. Communities in the Americas deserve an information environment free of fear and repression, one that rewards connection, security, and fair participation in democracy.


Our Approach

We foster research and an exchange of ideas across disciplines, leaders, and countries; guide interventions that serve our communities in the U.S. and across the Americas; and center Latinos and Latin Americans in policy conversations about the future of the digital information ecosystem.
