Launching November 3rd in New York City! Join us online or in person.

Please join us on November 3rd at 10am U.S. Eastern time for the launch of the inaugural Ranking Digital Rights Corporate Accountability Index!

Click here to RSVP for the event at Civic Hall in New York City – or watch the live webcast and join the conversation through social media.

The Ranking Digital Rights Corporate Accountability Index ranks 16 of the world’s most powerful Internet and telecommunications companies on their commitments and disclosed practices affecting users’ freedom of expression and privacy. Starting on November 3rd, rankingdigitalrights.org will feature interactive visualizations of the data as well as analyses of company performance. A narrative report as well as the raw research data will also be available for download.

Find out which companies are doing better than others,  why there are no real “winners,” and what concrete steps companies can take to improve.

The launch event will begin with a presentation of results and conclude with a conversation about how consumers, activists, investors, and companies themselves can use this data to ensure that, as businesses power and shape our Internet, they also do a better job of respecting our rights.

The launch will be followed by events in other cities. More details about locations and how to join them will be shared on this website as they are confirmed. (Most recently updated: Oct. 28)
