Allied Media Projects and the Detroit Digital Justice Coalition: Building a Healthy Digital Ecosystem in Detroit

Jan 18, 2012

"Often the most holistic solutions come from places with fewer resources. When people are deeply rooted in their communities, they think about how technology and media can support local solutions," says Diana Nucera, Co-Director of Allied Media Projects (AMP) in Detroit, Michigan.

Both AMP and the Open Technology Initiative (OTI) are members of the Detroit Digital Justice Coalition (DDJC), an alliance of organizations that received Broadband Technology Opportunity Program (BTOP) grants to run Sustainable Broadband Adoption (SBA) and Public Computer Center (PCC) programs in Detroit.

On November 15th, an AMP team including Nucera, Adriel Thornton, and Anderson Walworth came to Washington, DC, where they gave a presentation at OTI’s offices, visited a field test of the Commotion wireless mesh platform in McPherson Square, and met with staff from their congressional representatives.
