Cities Coalition for Digital Rights

City of Portland is a part of the Cities Coalition for Digital Rights. This coalition is a joint initiative launched by Amsterdam, Barcelona, and New York City. The initiative commits to protect, promote, and monitor digital rights.

The declaration outlines five sections for how cities have come together to protect and uphold human rights on the internet on local and global scales:

  1. Universal and equal access to the internet and digital literacy

  2. Privacy, data protection, and security

  3. Transparency, accountability, and non discrimination of data, content, and algorithms

  4. Participatory Democracy, diversity, and inclusion

  5. Open and ethical digital service standards
