Technology and Social Justice Series: What Can the Tech Community Do—Practitioners and Their Employers
Tech workers, including developers at some of the largest tech companies, have started to push back against the use of their application code for purposes that violate the norms of social justice, with some of their leaders having been fired for their outspoken opposition.
