Is there a long term strategy in human rights technology?

Over the past decade, Aspiration has worked with a range of partners and allies across the human rights sector on a wide spectrum of technology projects and events.

Most human rights technology efforts—whether responding to an incident and mitigating a specific threat, working on technology features and usability, or doing evaluation and risk assessment—tend to focus on short-term horizons and/or be reactive in nature.

Nonprofit tech capacity building; our CA road trip dispatch

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!
