Over Labor Day weekend, urban youth of the Compton and Oakland
communities of California will have the opportunity to flex their tech
muscles at the “We Are Code” two-day hackathon event designed to promote
awareness and innovation.

childhood educator/Black parenting expert Moya Ojarigi and her husband,
Mohammed Ali Ojarigi, have found just the right balance in making their
preschool a successful venture in West Hills, California.
