The world is changing every day. As tech emerged, so emerged the digital divide. Today, the rise of COVID-19 and the resulting shelter-in-place has deepened the divide and the impact could be devasting for those without access to tech education and technology-enabled workplaces and careers.
Hack the Hood was created to bring together young people of color, small business owners, and tech industry leaders to advance equity, inclusion, and innovation for the entire community - especially in the tech sector. In our 2019 Impact Report, we shared our vision for 2020 and we couldn’t be more determined to bring these plans to fruition.
In these changing times, Hack the Hood’s mission to bridge that gap is more even critical than ever. As we face an uncertain world, we are certain about this: Hack the Hood is dedicated to doing whatever it takes to remain strong, stable and working to keep our community whole and we need YOU now more than ever to make that work possible.
We intend to keep it 100 through COVID-19 and beyond by cultivating 100 Change Makers to help us further our work and impact all year round through monthly giving. Your monthly donation will help us continue to be the mission-driven change makers the world needs now more than ever.
When you give a monthly gift to Hack the Hood, you ensure that our programs and partnerships have the resources to equip our youth and small businesses with the tools they need to navigate an ever-changing landscape. The amount of small change you accumulate in a month can go to creating a huge impact.
