We stand on the shoulders of giants. 

Boston prides itself on its history as the site of the revolution, the birth place of America. One can simply follow the Freedom Trail to retrace the steps of  this city's glorious history. However, up in Beacon Hill there's another path you can take: the Black Heritage trail. On that tour you'll learn about abolitionists such as Lewis Hayden or Eliza Ann Gardner. Indeed, as the capital of the first U.S. state to declare slavery illegal, Boston was at the center of the fight for the abolition of slavery. The fight for liberty, equity and dignity is at the heart of this city's culture. It is etched in the stone. It is embodied by its people.

At Resilient Coders, we walk on the path that these figures have forged for us in the fight for racial equity. We build economic resiliency in black and brown communities by providing access to software engineering opportunities through training, placement and support for young adults of color. Each of our graduates belongs to a House named after one of four local activists who dedicated their lives to fulfilling the promise of this great nation :  Eliza Ann Gardner, Lewis Hayden, Melnea Cass, and Bob Parris Moses. 

Join the fight for equity in Tech by donating to a Resilient Coders House.  Your contribution will be matched by one of our four house champions,  thus doubling your donation!

Together, let's fight for social justice and equity in tech.

Onwards, 

Resilient Coders
