The Computers For Social Change Network originated in 1986 when a group of human service and computer professionals came together with community leaders and organizers from a variety of organizations in the New York Metropolitan area.
The goal of CFSC is to connect organizing groups from "electronic information poor" communities to technology resources. Our collaboration wants to influence the direction and relevance of computer technologies as tools for empowerment and universal access to vital information in order to improve social and economic conditions in our communities. Our dual focus on technology AND social change is what makes our work important. We offer opportunities for diverse groups to exchange ideas, experiences, resources in an atmosphere of mutual respect.
