BIPOC Hackathon

On July 28th, we hosted a hackathon for Toronto’s BIPOC communities at the Parkdale Centre for Innovation.

We wanted to create a space where BIPOC could work together and build tech projects for our communities. Our hackathon welcomed over forty coders, designers, artists, activists, and anyone else with an interest in learning more about technology and/or collaborating with like-minded BIPOCs.

Participants worked in teams on a variety of projects, including an online toolkit to help address anti-Black racism in Asian communities, a restaurant directory listing BIPOC-owned restaurants, and a sexual health resource for Muslim youth.
