Promoting Social Justice through F/OSS

Published on

Promoting social justice by contributing to F/OSS - Women Who Code Hackathon - October 2017  ✌️

At the core of social justice is the notion of equality of opportunity.

Through the use of F/OSS, tech literacy can be promoted among groups that might not otherwise have access to the tools necessary to build such literacy.

By contributing to open-source projects, we are not only helping promote social justice but also aiding to bridging the digital divide by lowering financial and intellectual property barriers to resources and knowledge.
