RxT: Justice, Data & Safety in a Pandemic

April 29 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

“Join us for a virtual session focused on technology’s role in addressing the impact of COVID-19 on communities of color. Hear from movement technology leaders on how we can center equity & justice as we build solutions and policies to address this crisis. Hear from movement technology leaders, Yeshimabeit Milner from Data 4 Black Lives and Nasma Ahmed from Digital Justice Lab and Sabrina Hersi Issa from COVID Racial Impact Data Alliance on how we can center equity & justice as we build solutions and policies to address this crisis.

Rights x Tech is a forum for technologists, policy experts and movement leaders to discuss emerging issues around human rights, technology and power. We seek to explicitly explore intersections and to connect and mobilize community for solutions-building.

Technology has the power to solve society’s most pressing social issues but only if that power is in balance and connection with the rights of people and the planet.

We believe in embedding intentionality and principles into the future of technology platforms. We host product managers, technology policy analysts, social movement organizers and individuals committed to exploring how they can use their positions of power within technology ecosystem to improve the world.”
