We are a not-for-profit dedicated to serving communities-in-need with good technology.

We are creators, researchers, technologists, and advocates from all walks of life with shared passion for helping people.

Digital Public Square began as a project at the University of Toronto’s Munk School in 2013—building one of the first political process monitoring platforms of its kind in Iran and helping citizens evade repressive online censorship.

Over the years that followed the team built new tools to tackle issues important to women across the Middle East, games supporting human rights, and a digital hygiene platform for people around the world.

In 2016, that project’s leadership founded Digital Public Square, the not-for-profit, to serve communities-in-need with good technology. Our work has grown to reach millions of people worldwide across the Americas, Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and Asia.

Digital Public Square would not be here without the incredible alumni, friends, volunteers, and partners we’ve had along the way.

Thank you for everything you’ve done. You make this work possible.
