Happening this Month
February 14 marked the one-year anniversary of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in Parkland, Florida. While we remain heartbroken by this tragedy and others caused by gun violence, we’re overwhelmed by the determination of youth activists like Cameron Kasky, Jaclyn Corin, David Hogg, Emma González, Alex Wind, and their peers. This month, we’re celebrating teens, adults, and companies who are making a difference.

And the Winner is...Microsoft
Sure, the Patriots took home the Vince Lombardi trophy (again). But for us, the real winner of Super Bowl LIII is this ad for Microsoft’s Xbox Adaptive Controller. It melted our hearts and got us excited about the future of assistive technology, EdTech, and inclusive education.
