Douglass Global Decentralized OS

The first new computing architecture in 25 years brings hardware, software, services, and policy together to create systemic change and culture shift.

Why Douglass?

Douglass is named in honor of Frederick Douglass — an African American icon who stood for the equality of all peoples and possibility of a better tomorrow. A runaway slave before the Civil War, Douglass became an entrepreneur, advocate for abolition, supporter of women’s suffrage, and bridge between communities. By basing our company on his legacy, we look to bring his sense of hope and determination into the lives of people today.

Douglass is a Public Benefits Corp

Policy makes all the difference — The Beloved Community License

Douglass Brings the BCL to the World — Technology in service to the SOUL

Douglass Decentralized OS and Devices have been developed from the ground up with the intention of bringing Martin Luther King’s “Beloved Community” into reality.

To support this social mission, we have created the Beloved Community License, which states that any software or hardware developed for the Douglass platform will not support violence, surveillance, and incarceration.

The BCL sets the stage for a new relationship of technology and business to society. People will see Douglass and the BCL as symbols for actively making the world a better place.

  • Equitable & Inclusive
  • Nonviolent
  • Support for the Oppressed
  • Recognize the Humanity of the Incarcerated
  • Recognize Spiritual Divinity of All People
  • Recognize the Sanctity of the Earth
  • Peaceful conflict resolution
  • Reconciliation of adversaries
  • Applies to any industry

Learn more about the BCL if you want to support more humane technology.
