  Attention College Students, Faculty & Library Members!

TEQWeek Launch
Sold out! We are so excited to be a part of Tech Equity Week (#TEQWeek) with a screening of  Code Oakland tonight at the Kapor Center for Social Impact.

Organized by local teacher and CODEd Academy founder Kennan Scott, this awesome event will include a robot demo, the film screening, and a panel discussion including Director Kelly Amis and two of Code Oakland's amazing youth stars, Isaiah Martin and Sasha Williams

#TEQWeek was founded and launched in Oakland by Qeyno Labs and the Rainbow Push Coalition; this year it has expanded to  five cities. Get more info here, and join us in congratulating Kalimah Priforce (the inspiration behind Code Oakland), Kelley Nayo Jahi and the entire Qeyno team on their success. 
'Stop & Frisk' Nationwide?
During last fall's election campaign, now- President Donald Trump said he would call for a nationwide Stop-and-Frisk policy. We could not be more opposed to the concept. Stop-and-Frisk is racial profiling pure and simple. It is harassment based solely on skin color.

As you may know, our short film Think of Calvin shows an example of this injustice in action. Previewed at The Atlantic's Race & Justice Summit (watch here on CSPAN) and recently winning Best Short Documentary at the Napa Valley Film Festival, Think of Calvin shows how an entire family is impacted by an attempted stop-and-frisk in the nation's capitol. 

If you're interested in hosting a screening and discussion of Think of Calvin, please contact us at screenings@teached.org or go to our website to get started. We think this conversation needs to happen now
