Building tech capacity with social justice nonprofits; our next California road trip
After a few great mini road trips to Oakland, Santa Cruz, and Watsonville, we'll be back on the road again traveling through the beautiful Central Valley and Southern California on September 25-29! We are visiting with folks working for social justice at nonprofits, community-led organizations, and youth advocacy groups to learn what they are up to and find out ways Aspiration may be able to support those efforts with our California Technology Capacity Building program.
If you're interested in meeting up, feel free to email us or call us at +1 415.839.6456. We would love to see if we can drop by!
As the newest member of the Aspiration team, I am looking forward to working with social justice organizations in California to help build statewide tech capacity and leadership. We are excited to continue this project which is made possible by a grant from the CRT Settlement Fund.
We are in the beginning stages of developing some new bilingual resources, both in English and Spanish, focused on online communications strategy and digital security to help maximize reach, impact, and sustainable practices. We learned a lot from visiting with our East Bay and Central Coast friends and are excited to continue mapping out the needs and opportunities that nonprofits are facing around the state.
We are passionate about sharing best practices that drive both strategy and effective use of technology and are always open to explore other topics. What we learn on the road will directly shape our work in helping nonprofits and social justice activists leverage technology to empower themselves and the communities they serve.
