Code2040's mission is to activate, connect, and mobilize the largest racial equity community in tech to dismantle the structural barriers that prevent the full participation and leadership of Black and Latinx people in the innovation economy. Through events, trainings, early-career programs, and knowledge sharing, Code2040 equips their community with the tools, connections, and care they need to advocate for and achieve racial equity in the tech industry.
Accion Opportunity Fund Community Development
Accion Opportunity Fund is a financial support system for small businesses that advances racial, gender, and economic justice for all.Small business owners uplift communities and anchor local economies, while creating opportunities for themselves, their families, their employees, and our neighborhoods. Yet entrepreneurs who are people of color, women, and low-to-moderate income often struggle to secure capital and resources, as they are systematically shut out from traditional financing. In 2020, Accion Opportunity Fund was formed as Accion U.S. Network and Opportunity Fund came together. Together, we fight for an inclusive and accessible financial system so small business owners of all identities can thrive.
