Civil Rights

Everyone deserves to feel comfortable in their own skin, online or off.

Civil Rights

Help provide technological solutions to issues such as online harassment, workplace misconduct, and bullying, in ways which are innovative, accessible, and straightforward.

Graphic that represents sustainability

Sustainability

Mother Earth has a fever and it's in our best interest to cure her.

Sustainability

Find creative ways to help curb pollution of all varieties, enable access to better environmental scientific literature, or any other cause you see fit to help the planet we all share.

Graphic that represents equity

Equity

Not everyone has access to financial literacy, legal aid, health information, and other sources of relevant knowledge.

Equity

Create a product which helps level the playing field by aiding access to information that everyone is entitled to have.

Mental Health

The conversation around mental health is becoming more accepted, but there is still a shortage of stigma-free resources.

Mental Health

Contribute to the progress of services by making a product which facilitates care, serves as a liaison to accurate information, works to raise awareness, or any other action you see fit to help the vast category of mental health.
