As LKHZ is educating itself and learning during this tumultuous time, we wanted to spread some love to an organization that promotes our message, but also diversity and inclusion.
We recently made a donation to Black Girls Code, an incredible nonprofit devoted to teaching computer science skills to black girls ages 7-17, aiming to reduce the major disparities in the STEM and coding fields.
Racism is institutionalized, and seeps into our education system to perpetuate inequalities. LKHZ sees this globally, and America is not exempt from this. If anything, we are a prime example of racism and educational inequality. Organizations like Black Girls Code is a prime way to fight this (in addition to combatting racism and changing policies). Their free workshops incite passion and make small yet meaningful steps to empower WOC to enter the STEM world (which we need!).
Consider donating as well, no amount is too small!
