We believe technology policy has the potential to increase opportunity and limit harms, when done through a racial equity lens. This is why the Racial Equity in Technology Policy Accelerator is a joint initiative by the Federation of American Scientists’ Day One Project and the Kapor Center. Together we want to identify, develop, and publish a set of racial justice & technology policy ideas to be implemented by the legislative and executive branches.
The accelerator is a nine-week, part-time process designed to hone participants’ policy-writing skills. Selected participants will have a chance to develop their ideas with guidance from policy advisors, meet with veteran policymakers to learn more about the nuances of policy implementation, hone their ability to craft actionable policy on the federal level, and build a community with their fellow cohort.
