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, age 7-17, 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). 

Since last year's Summer of CODE 2012 campaign, Black Girls CODE have received requests from over 80 cities around the nation and in the Caribbean Islands asking us to bring our workshops to their communities. 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.

This event will support the development of our New York Chapter. We hope to see you around!

Together we can #ChangeTheRatio #1GirlAtATime.
