“Neither love nor terror makes one blind: indifference makes one blind” ~ James Baldwin
As a global platform, we believe we have a duty to our team, our participants, our mentors and our communities to speak up. We stand in solidarity with the fight against systemic racism.
Black Lives Matter.
We encourage participants to dedicate their time and energy to thinking critically about the issues surrounding racism in our society. Given our hackathon’s focus on the COVID-19 pandemic, participants are invited to examine systemic racial inequalities and how these differences have been amplified during this challenging time.
We hope that our event can serve as a platform for participants and mentors to unite in rising up against the injustices plaguing our world.
