Hybrid event [in person & virtual]
Why Social Justice?
TechBridge focuses on Social Justice because a fair and just society is essential to poverty alleviation.
TechBridge contributes to ending generational poverty by providing technology products and services to organizations that promote social justice efforts, exhibit the characteristics of social justice values, and deliver services to those impacted by barriers to achieving social justice. TechBridge seeks to collaborate with thought leaders in the field of social justice and share our technology and data expertise.
At this inaugural event, Social Justice nonprofits as well as corporations will come together to discuss how data and technology can support efforts to create a just society. Panelists and participants will discuss policy and program strategies, share important research findings, and engage in building dynamic new networks and collaborative partnerships.
This year, we are focusing on Civic Engagement & Eviction because both have been intensely examined through a social justice lens in the past two years, and TechBridge has had the opportunity to contribute technology in both areas.
