This event was a part of the Civic Engagement Survival Guide: a series of free talks and workshops focused on creating a community that is informed, organized, and engaged.
In December, we met Hannah Howard, an engineer with a long history of activism. With over a decade of experience working both as the developer and the client in the non-profit space, Hannah delivers a unique and informed perspective on how technical people can best utilize their skills to assist social justice efforts. Her talk, Working Effectively with Social Justice Movements: A Primer for Techies, provides a beginner-friendly onboarding for technical people, complete with tips, tricks, and common pitfalls to avoid.
