About this Episode

We are pausing our normal tech-talk this week in support of the ongoing protests and to re-share the #BlackTechTwitter episode with Pariss Athena from our sister podcast, Giant Robots.

During the past week, millions of people across the country have participated in protests in response to the killing of George Floyd and the systemic racism that plagues our nation.

For everyone fighting for equality and justice, we see you, we love you, and we support you. Black lives matter. Black culture matters. Black communities matter.

For those looking for ways to take action, we have provided a few resources in the show notes. The list is intentionally short as we ask everyone to research ways to get involved and listen to leaders in the Black community.

Fighting for equality falls on each of us, regardless of race or position, to work together to fight racism and unequal treatment.

Stay Safe.
