Digital Citizen, a pioneer in citizen engagement media since 1998, connects Americans to their leaders, each other, and the world.
Our deeply divided nation agrees on one thing, at least: Your facts and my facts are irrevocably different.
Digital Citizen is a pioneer in citizen engagement media since 1998 that connects Americans to their leaders, each other, and the world. As a strategic partner in innovative media design, the non-profit produces for television and the Internet, and combines media and mediation in numerous projects in the U.S. and around the world, working with organizations including PBS.org, the World Bank, The Bridge Alliance, Oakland Tribune, United Republic, Twin Cities Public TV, Link TV, the San Francisco Sheriff’s Department, and many more.
Digital Citizen has been involved in a range of projects, including under our original name, Internews Interactive. These include the News Ambassadors radio pilot; the Goldziher award for journalists in 2017, 2019 and 2022; the TV and web video series This Planet; and a special program about the 2016 US election for Link TV and KCET.
Citizen engagement projects history
Besides contributing to the engagement community’s vital work through frequent writing, we remain involved in connecting Americans and Russians in dialogue, and have produced a number of TV and online projects, including the 2013 Real Dialogues “Work & Wages” project and Digital Citizen 2012. InterAct grew out of our work in the analog era, connecting Americans to the world using technologies like satellites to produce the Emmy Award-winning Spacebridges, and videoconferencing for Vis a Vis and other TV series. Clips of citizen engagement programs we produced in the US and around the world between 1998 and 2004 can be seen at our Archive Page. Articles we have written and news stories about our work can be found at the Archive: Articles page of this website.
