Bringing  Citizens Back Together to Fight For Our Digital Humanity
one bad robot  at a time

Since 2018, the IDH and its students have built
 seemingly impossible coalitions
across our religious,
political, and cultural divisions.

 Bringing diverse teams of students, lawyers, educators, experts, advocates, and politicians together
to fight for a just, free, and sane
digital world.

The IDH is the proven
bi-partisan and multi-faith solution
that can save us in time.

Our programmers, politicians, advocates, and educators
 don't know how to get us out of this mess in time to save us.  

So in 2018, we took 20 years of proven digital ethics solutions -- to fix privacy, algorithmic bias, disinformation, and censorship....


....and bet them all on a scrappy bunch of Evangelical students to show that diverse Americans -- conservatives, liberals, Christians, Muslims, Jews and every identity in between -- could still come together to fight for a just, free, and sane digital world.

And here's the thing: It fucking worked.

Welcome to the institute for digital humanity.

With one holistic method we can teach to anyone. 

And that can bring citizens back together 

The IDH Fixes It.  And Brings Citizens Back Together.
With One Holistic, Bi-Partisan, and Programmable Method.
That We Can Teach to Anyone.   

We know how to fix it.  And bring citizens back together.
