2024 NAACP – Archewell Foundation Digital Civil Rights Award

The Archewell Foundation is proud to congratulate this year’s recipient of the NAACP – Archewell Foundation Digital Civil Rights Award, Dr. Joy Buolamwini. 

Dr. Joy is a computer scientist, digital activist and founder of the Algorithmic Justice League, an organization leading the way to overcome racist and sexist biases in artificial intelligence systems. In her book, “Unmasking AI,” she examines the social implications of technology and discusses the movement to prevent AI harms. As the recipient of this award, she will receive a grant of $100,000 to advance her work in supporting equity and accountability in AI.

Launched in 2022, this annual award uplifts a new generation of leaders who are creating transformational change and working to advance civil rights through the online world.

“I am incredibly humbled and honored to join such an illustrious group of receipts for the Digital Civil Rights Award from the NAACP and The Archewell Foundation,” said Dr. Joy Buolamwini. “With the rapid proliferation of AI, it is more crucial than ever to ensure that these algorithms acting as gatekeepers serve us all and do not impede on the civil rights of marginalized communities. This award will help the Algorithmic Justice League continue our work to prevent AI harms, connect the excoded to resources and raise awareness about AI’s impact on society through our advocacy, art and research.”
