Fees & Fines
Court-related fees and fines exacerbate poverty and often result in incarceration. We’re documenting the damage wrought by criminal justice debt and working to end the unjust policies associated with it.

Congressional funding to secure our elections falls short. State and local elections should be prepared to act alone if Congress won’t.

Government: Social Media Surveillance.
Federal agencies are expanding their collection of social media information on foreign and American travelers. We shine a light on the immense scope of this personal data collection and advocate for greater transparency and oversight.

Policing & Technology.
New surveillance technologies allow police to collect enormous swaths of data about ordinary citizens. We bring these programs to light and recommend ways to increase transparency and accountability.
