The Big Stories
Technology is evolving and innovating all the time. We are integrating hardware and software into our lives more and more everyday. And opportunities for digital intervention, organizing, and activism are multiplying with each new iteration of tech. Yet, if new technology is not developed by those who are leading the charge for racial and gender justice, then we are missing the real chance to innovate our society.
If we own and control our own political and economic resources and systems then we can hold whatever mechanisms for justice that we come up with accountable to us. We have to act – not because the system won’t change, but because that’s the only way to get the system to change.
Happening now! See how folks are organizing across the interwebs to reimagine the pop culture phenomenon of the ALS #IceBucketChallenge and turn it into the #IceBucketHack - an action to raise funds and awareness to fight racism and police brutality. Funds raised go directly to The Organization for Black Struggle (OBS).
