Responding to Social Inequity

Dear We Can Code IT community,

Outside of our We Can Code IT community, the country is in a time of deep sorrow, anger, and uncertainty. The inequities of institutionalized racism, the deep economic divide amongst social classes, and the unhealed wounds of many injustices have come to a head. As sickness and social unrest surround us, we look to our mission of Championing Social Equity through Technology, and our values surrounding “Championing diversity and inclusion”, “Owning our own stuff”, and “Striving to understand.”

I can never know what it would be like to live in this world as anything other than a white woman. I can only strive to understand the suffering, the frustration, the pains of my friends, peers, and community members. I can support and help with the common fight towards equality. I can listen empathetically and give of myself to right any wrongs that have been committed.
