Information Renaissance is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) corporation founded in 1996 that promotes the use of the Internet to support the public interest. Our goal is to enable citizens to participate more fully in the democratic process by improving access and fostering meaningful, high-level, interactive exchanges between informed members of the public and their government. To support this goal we seek to provide appropriate and sustainable technology for underserved communities nationwide.
  • Public Participation in Rulemaking: Encouraging citizens throughout the country to learn about and comment on national legislation or public policy during the rulemaking process.
  • Online Dialogues: Interactive discussions related to public policy issues.
  • Technology for the Community: Empowering people by increasing their access to and control of networked technologies.
  • Neighborhood Networks: Neighborhood level public networking infrastructure, including the planning and deployment of optical fiber, copper wire and wireless technologies.
We work at the boundaries between technology, community organizing and government, acting as intermediaries to promote civic access and engagement.
