About Upturn

Upturn is building a world where technology upholds the dignity and worth of all people. We break down barriers and build networks of trust and collaboration between policymakers, technology-builders, and communities, so society can maximize the benefits and avoid the risks of new technology. We produce clear, incisive research and analysis of emerging issues in technology and public policy that guides the public conversation.

We believe that new technologies and uses of data can bring greater opportunity and fairness for everyone — and we know that this won’t happen by default. Patterns of bias and injustice remain pervasive in society. When these patterns are echoed by our technologies, rights are threatened and opportunities for progress are missed. Law and policy must continually be adapted as technologies change, so that core rights are always protected.

Upturn works in partnership with many of the nation’s leading civil rights and public interest organizations. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. (From our founding in 2011 to fall 2017, we were a public interest focused consulting firm.)
