eDemocracy: the intersection of advocacy and technology
ZeroDivide’s eDemocracy work enables underserved communities and the nonprofit organizations that serve them to advocate for change within institutions and their communities. We accomplish this by building the tech capacity and social media capabilities of nonprofit organizations so they can build community support and take their causes directly to decision makers.

The California Endowment, Statewide Youth Network
We are working to help The California Endowment develop a tech-savvy, effective youth network that elevates and combines the voices of underserved California youth (ages 15-24) and their adult allies into a movement, or coalition, for community change. This work involves helping young people take advantage of the tools they already use to connect with their peers (such as social networking and digital media) to turn their voices into influence, and thereby increase the way they can help change their world.
