Attention Design students and alumni!
@buildforblacklives has projects that are seeking pro-bono design services for Black-owned businesses. The organization has experience running hackathons that bring together Computer Science majors with other disciplines. See information below if you are interested in viewing their open projects.
From their website: “Build for Black Lives is a platform built to connect anti-racist individuals with activists, organizers, and Black-owned businesses to provide pro bono work creating websites, apps, graphics, social media content, data visualizations, and other projects. Our aim is to provide pro-bono services as a means of working towards justice and reparations for a community that has been systematically oppressed, exploited, and underserved by the tech and design industries.
Build for Black Lives was created by HackBeanpot, a 501(c)(3), Boston-based hackathon that aims to build a diverse, inclusive, learning-focused tech community. Given that racism has long been an issue in the tech space, we started this platform to bring the anti-racist tech community together to take action to support Black lives and fight white supremacy.”
