Democracy Fund’s Digital Democracy Portfolio (DDP) and its grantees have been radically reimagining platform accountability and media policy through strategies at the intersection of reparation and rights.
To support this work, the team’s evaluation and learning partner, ORS Impact, conducted learning conversations with DDP grantees in March and April 2023 to understand the current state of the media and technology policy field and facilitate real-time learning among grantees. The conversations focused on three key areas:
- Coordination in the field
- The network of state and local advocates in the field
- If and how the field is considering and/or engaging in narrative and cultural change strategies
This report summarizes findings across the learning conversations and highlights feedback for Democracy Fund and philanthropy more broadly.
