Our Initiatives

#YesWeCode provides low-opportunity youth with the necessary resources and tools to become high-level computer programmers. By learning this highly valuable and relevant 21st century skill, these young people can not only shift the trajectory of their own futures, but transform their relationships with their communities and their country.
In collaboration with grassroots training programs, job-training programs, tech companies and employers, school districts, and community stakeholders, #YesWeCode is building a pipeline solution to introduce low-opportunity, job-focused young people to careers in technology.

#cut50 seeks to reduce the U.S. prison population by half and facilitate relationships between leaders from both parties, tech entrepreneurs, and criminal justice activists so they can identify solutions to mass incarceration and effective alternative sentencing programs.

Through a series of community-focused summits and workshops, #cut50 will increase general awareness of the burden mass incarceration puts on society and the colossal waste of resources being expended in the current criminal justice system.

Green For All works to build an inclusive green economy strong enough to lift people out of poverty. 

Our goal is to make sure people of color have a place and a voice in the climate movement. That our neighborhoods are strong, resilient, and healthy. That as the clean energy economy grows, it brings jobs and opportunities to our communities.
