RACIAL EQUITY ACCELERATOR

Applying technology innovation that advances racial equity

In collaboration with Collective Impact Network to unlock new solutions across a range of racial equity focus areas, we are bringing programs of influential mission-driven organizations together with technology innovation (data science, AI, coding) to fast-track them using advanced technologies that make it possible to approach big challenges with new solutions that were not possible just a few years ago, alongside a grant pool of $10M+ across ten projects. 

We are looking for project proposals and additional key partners worldwide to join others involved including Google, Amazon Web Services, Techstars, The King Center, National Black Chamber of Commerce, National Cares Mentoring Movement, and Bay Area community foundations.
