Idalin Bobé is the founder of TechActivist.Org, a grassroots organization providing free technical training and political education workshops to working class youth, activists, and disruptors interested in using technology for social good. She is also a founding member of the Popular Education Project, serves on the national education committee of the Poor People's Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival, and is part of the People's Forum, a movement incubator in New York City. Coming from a poor Afro-Latinx community in North Philadelphia, Idalin witnessed firsthand how the people most impacted by social ills were and still are on the losing side of the digital, educational, and economic divide. That understanding led her to dedicate herself to work directly with organizations that are focused on social change and are part of the communities they serve. Through her tech literacy programs, Idalin provides hands-on workshops introducing communities to digital media tools, digital security, open source, web development, and emerging technology like 3D printing.
