the '80s called.
they want their dystopian robot overlords back.


The IDH is a student-run, human-focused think tank that advocates for civil rights when technology gets out of control.

Specifically. the IDH fights against


  • threats to digital privacy

  • algorithmic discrimination and inaccuracy

  • the filter bubble's dangerous informational and political isolation

  • the incivility of online hate speech

  • the undemocratic stifling of free speech


We fight robots.


We do this by partnering with a diverse, bi-partisan, and multi-disciplinary coalition comprised of students, educators, academics, lawyers, advocates, and community organizations at both the local and national level.


Since launching in January 2019,

the IDH has proudly partnered with


The Anti-Defamation League

Bites Media

Indiana University's OSTROM Working Group

Indiana University's Kelley School of Business

The Little Earth Residence Association

We went there.

Wait, this fight is national?
