About Us

Our Mission is to lend a conservative voice to the calls for federal and state governments to rein in Big Tech before it’s too late.

We are conservatives who are alarmed by the role Big Tech plays in our society. We are concerned by the political and economic harms Big Tech platforms such as Google, Facebook, and Amazon are inflicting on Americans. These harms include negative content, conservative bias, privacy violations, anticompetitive conduct, and employee abuses. We formed Internet Accountability Project in order to speak out against Big Tech before it is too late.

The Internet Accountability Project (IAP) educates the public and advocates for policies that: (1) promote competition and innovation in the technology sector; (2) ensure online platforms provide a forum for diverse points of view; (3) ensure online privacy; (4) protect children and communities online; and (5) strengthen national security through the effective use of technology.
