You are Cordially Invited to the

Launch of Summer of CODE 2013 - The Remix

Presented by: Black Girls CODE

 

Allow us to re-introduce ourselves: 

We are Black Girls CODE, a nonprofit organization whose mission has transformed to a global movement to give young girls of color the tools to become inventors, leaders and creators of their own future in the world’s technology economy. To date we have educated and introduced computer programming to over 1,200 girls of color (Black, Latina and Native American). 

Join us as we celebrate the launch of our crowdfunding campaign that will help support our expanded Summer of CODE 2013 and bring our mobile lab to 10 new cities and reach 2,000 more girls. In addition, we will excitedly unveil the award winning short documentary on Black Girls CODE by filmmaker Shanice Johnson.

Since last year's Summer of CODE 2012 campaign, Black Girls CODE has received request from over 50 cities around the nation and Caribbean Islands asking us to bring our workshops to their community. Dedicated to our mission we are once again bootstrapping and looking for your help to join us on our mission in building the next generation of techies in these 10 new cities. 

Together we can #ChangeTheRatio #1GirlAtATime.
