I continued to code in 2019 because...

I'm an activist, and I think leveraging technology is critical in being able to organize and do outreach.

I deserve credit for...

Hopefully inspiring others to code/be a technologist, and helping those pursuing it to be successful. Offering low-cost to pro bono services to influential individuals or non-profits with causes I support in my free time.

I hope to see my tech community...

Be more inclusive--actually inclusive, and not just ticking off checkboxes for diversity and hiring vulnerable people into toxic work environments. Sensitivity training or whatever it takes--invest in it.
