Racial Equity Accelerator: Applying technology innovation that advances racial equity
We are issuing an open call to organizations to submit ideas that fast-track racial equity.
Advanced technologies make it possible to approach big challenges with new solutions that were not possible just a few years ago. By bringing together funders, civic orgs, and non-profits with technology innovation, we’ll create a grant-based acceleration program that generates new solutions for racial equity in the US and globally.
We are looking for project proposals across a range of racial equity areas and levels of technical expertise, from organizations that are experienced in technology to those with an idea for how technology can unlock new solutions in areas including criminal justice reform, housing, healthcare, education, workforce, voting and politics.
