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.
