Recommendation: Empowermentors

Jaye Johnson recommends…


Empowermentors is an uber-active, supportive collective and its Facebook group’s quite lively. According to its founder, it’s open to: “Trans/Disabled/Queer/Femme Hackers of Color.”

She goes on to say, “The Empowermentors Collective is a skillshare, discussion, and support network for intersectionally marginalized people of color with a critical interest in technology and media hacking.”


“Also, we currently have many online groups– an email listserv, irc channel, facebook group, and also google+ … I also try to crosspost things between tumblr, twitter, diaspora,, the facebook page, and google+ page, so that people have a choice of where they engage.”

Check them out on their website or on facebook.
