New Projects Announced in Call for Code for Racial Justice

IBM and the Linux Foundation have announced two new projects relating to the Call for Code for Racial Justice initiative. 

This initiative, which was created by David Clark Cause and launched last year, “facilitates the adoption and innovation of open source projects by developers, ecosystem partners, and communities across the world to promote racial justice” in the areas of police and judicial reform, diverse representation, and policy and legislation reform.

The two new projects are: 

  • Fair Change: a platform to help record, catalog, and access evidence of potentially racially charged incidents to help enable transparency, reeducation and reform as a matter of public interest and safety.
  • TakeTwo: a project to help mitigate bias in digital content, with a focus on text across news articles, headlines, web pages, blogs, and code.

These projects, along with five existing open source projects from the Call for Code for Racial Justice will be hosted by the Linux Foundation.
