'Hands Up United' Launches Roy Clay Sr. Tech Workshop with Ferguson Youth

On Saturday, February 7th Hands Up United launched the Roy Clay Sr. Tech Workshop at TREX Tech Hub in downtown St. Louis. Hands Up United has just launched the Roy Clay Sr. Tech Workshop, a program dedicated to teaching St. Louis youth how to write computer code. The goal of the series is to empower local youth not only with skills they can apply in their professional pursuits, but in their own communities to strengthen local black-owned businesses, nonprofit organizations, and social movements in the Ferguson and Greater St. Louis Area. Workshop organizers believe that technological literacy is key to redesigning 21st century systems, and that this initiative is a first step to harnessing the power of technology to advance equity and inclusivity in cities like St Louis and beyond.
