Join Us in Building Our Black & Tech Communities!

Portland, OR Chapter

People, organizations, using networking and learning to stomp the digital divide!

Our Initiatives

We started out caring for each other and are continuously paying it forward. It’s not easy being in any organization and expecting inclusion. Nevertheless we think there are specific steps each of us can take to make our communities better. We pay our privileges forward and practice active listening.
