    We understand, as all Social Justice Advocates do, that building just communities requires engaging a diverse group of people and perspectives. Summit attendees will network with respected technology companies that focus on delivering services to nonprofits. We aim for those technology providers to learn from social justice advocates how data and technology support their work— ​because we are all in this together.

    — Samantha Sanchez, Summit Emcee & Director of Social Justice at TechBridge

    Our Dream Big for Social Justice Grant is one of the few grant opportunities that focuses on social justice nonprofits getting and using software technologies (plus IT hours) to help fulfill their missions.

    Technology has the potential to transform the operations of shelters, food pantries, workforce development programs, and more. Many nonprofits struggle with optimizing their client facing services due to a backlog of manual administrative work, but technology can expedite these processes.
