As technology becomes more and more central to socialization, organization and mobilization, the need for ensuring access to technology across all segments of society becomes more and more essential.  The DDJC is working toward that end through a variety of projects and programs.  So far two computer centers have been opened in partnership with existing community centers, and have been reaching out to multiple generations and ethnic groups.

Their efforts aim to demystify technology and media, and empower more and more segments of the population to become producers of empowering media and community development solutions.
